Why MA?


Transdisciplinary Learning begins with practical questions, and, while leaning on traditional disciplinary understanding, moves beyond the scope of disciplinary skill and content to generate novel responses to complex real-world issues.

Transdisciplinary education starts with asking practical questions. These questions become the basis for learning rather than a discipline or subject. Transdisciplinary learners delve deeper into their questions to better understand the context and to frame their exploration of solutions, while keeping in mind that even that process is iterative.

Transdisciplinary education values the knowledge created by different disciplines and synthesizes this knowledge to gain better insight into complex issues.
