For students interested in continuing their graduate studies by distance education, Athabasca University offers a number of options. Students interested in continuing their studies in Political Economy might want to check out Athabasca University's innovative Master of Arts—Integrated Studies (MAIS) program offered through the Centre for Integrated Studies.
A flexible and accessible degree, the MAIS recognizes an emerging need among university students to have the freedom to design their own learning program and to integrate studies across disciplinary boundaries in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. It explores interdisciplinary approaches to global studies; community development; cultural studies; work, organization and leadership; information studies; Canadian studies; historical studies (all in development); and adult education or educational studies (now open).
Depending on their undergraduate preparation, students may design a wholly independent learning path or pursue areas of specialization. A final project course allows students to examine theoretical and conceptual questions in an integrated manner, and link their learning to the workplace and community.
For more information on the MAIS, please contact the program's administrator.
