MULTIDISCIPLINARY ENVIRONMENT At the U of L, Faculties aren’t silos. Our size, and particularly our culture, create a multidisciplinary learning environment that’s evident in our research, teaching and programs. •
As part of the Institute for Child and Youth Studies, researchers in anthropology, English, education, history, psychology and neuroscience are all collaborating to explore youth and childhood. By bringing minds together and exploring topics from multiple angles, they are finding answers and, perhaps even more importantly, discovering better questions.
The Faculties of Education and Health Sciences are collaborating to offer a Master of Education in addictions and mental-health counselling. The program has a strong clinical focus and incorporates evidence-informed theoretical perspectives and interventions.
Offered as part of the Master of Arts and Master of Science programs, the individualized
multidisciplinary major helps facilitate critical dialogue across academic disciplines. •
The Doctor of Philosophy program is research-oriented and currently offered in multidisciplinary areas.
The Doctor of Philosophy in Education provides a theory-rich, research-intensive, dissertationfocused series of study, learning and research activities, advances knowledge and contributes to the improvement of professional practice. Students will study theory and identify critical problems, issues and questions in one of the three concentrations: Learning, Teaching and Curriculum; Formal and Distributive Leadership; or Counselling Psychology. Graduates will be well prepared to conduct and provide leadership in research in a variety of settings and in their career contexts.
Graduate students can complete a Master of Fine Arts with a major in art, new media, and theatre and dramatic arts, by completing a thesis project that culminates in an exhibition, performance or presentation.
