Interdisciplinary Problems and Methods (MASc)

1 year

Complex problems require an interdisciplinary approach. Their solutions will not come from a single subject or specialism. At LIS, this interdisciplinary problem-solving is exactly what we do. And our master’s students become experts at it. Our master’s offers two pathways: (1) Climate and Biodiversity; (2) Culture and Complexity. Both pathways share a common core but offer distinct angles of specialisation.  Students have the option of either full-time & on campus study or part-time & remote-first. With this flexible option, most of the teaching will be delivered online but students will have the opportunity to meet their peers and faculty on campus, at least once a term.
