Ensures students learn how their deep disciplinary knowledge can be applied to address real-world problems by working with companies and institutions tackling the complex problems facing these organizations.
Building on the undergraduate curriculum, students take advanced graduate-level courses that further reinforce their skills in critical thinking, creative thinking, effective communication, and effective interaction.
All courses assume adequate background knowledge and require students to do advanced, graduate-level work.
Research at a highly advanced level is at the heart of this program, including an additional Master’s Team Project as the culminating experience for this degree.
Graduates' skills and abilities will be attractive to potential employers who value the importance of interdisciplinary approaches to problem solving, collaboration and teamwork, and applied research and learning.
