Interdisciplinary Programs

Interdisciplinary programs of study are increasingly popular as we realize the benefits of multiple perspectives and methods to advance understanding and improve solutions.  Students in the College of Arts and Sciences may pursue formal interdisciplinary programs such as the Master’s degree in Computer Forensics and Security Management, which involves faculty from the departments of Computer & Information Sciences and Justice Sciences (College of Arts and Sciences), and the Departments of Management, Information Systems Quantitative Methods, and Accounting & Finance (School of Business). 

The Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Art & Art History bring their collective expertise and experience together to offer an interdisciplinary Category A certificate program involving an integrated art and engineering curriculum. The Leonardo Art & Engineering Graduate Certificate program provides cross-disciplinary training in simulation, art, visualization, and virtual reality to students with a BS/BA degree in Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Business, or Healthcare-related disciplines for addressing marketing, education/training, entertainment, product development, and design application demand of the 21st century growth area in 3D and VR technologies.
