Are you a forward-looking person who wants to make a positive impact on society? The MS degree in Integrative Social Science might be a good fit for you! The integrative approach emphasizes both theoretical analysis and real-world problem-solving abilities.
The degree puts you in an excellent position to pursue either doctoral work in the social sciences or a professional career in fields that seek to improve the lives of everyday people. And this master's program is one you can get started on as an undergraduate!
The master's program can be completed in an accelerated timeframe, as a combined 4 + 1 BS/MS program. By sharing 12 credits across the two degrees, you may save a year of course work (and 12 credits of graduate tuition). You may also apply to enter the ISS master's program after completing an undergraduate degree. The MS degree has two paths so that the degree can be customized to meet your goals:  

Option one: thesis (academic emphasis)

Recommended for those who may go on to a doctoral program. 


Option two: applied project  (professional emphasis)

Recommended for those looking to advance in their professional field.
