MA in Individualized Studies: The low-residency MA in Individualized Studies Program (IMA) is a four-semester (48 credit) interdisciplinary liberal studies degree integrating personal vision and voice with radical thinking and engaged practice. Credit is granted upon fulfillment of the degree criteria, including successful completion of the final product. The IMA Program is for students interested in pursuing a question, project, or career interest that is interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary, and personally compelling. The emphasis is on helping each student find and hone a focus of inquiry that brings together deep interests with relevant theory and actual practice. The holistic approach of the degree means that professional goals — whether for eventual doctoral study, a particular career path, a tangible product (like a publication or business plan), or particular skills (like workshop facilitation or land use planning) — and can be fully integrated into the degree plan.
