Dr. Stacey S. Cofield

UAB offers two master’s degrees in Interdisciplinary Graduate Studies (IGS): The Master of Arts and the Master of Science.

Both IGS degrees are designed to provide students with opportunities to blend two areas of expertise in order to best meet the needs of contemporary hybrid careers. The IGS degree allows students to personalize a master’s degree to align with their professional, academic, and personal goals. Students may choose to combine any two (2) UAB graduate certificates that have affiliated with the IGS program in order to gain knowledge and skills they want as they seek professional advancement or personal development.

The dynamic and global nature of today’s economies require leaders with advanced skills in multiple domains. Now more than ever employers seek leaders with competence in multiple arenas in order to meet the dynamic nature of global economies, the IGS degree offers students the flexibility to study advanced concepts and skills that are relevant to these multifunctional careers. Careers today require us to "wear many hats." UAB’s IGS degree allows students to personalize a graduate degree to advance their competencies in more than one specialized area.
