An interdisciplinary Master of Science degree is a degree granted for a curriculum of graduate study on a coherent and definable field of science and/or engineering. Such fields of study may exist at Tulane at the doctoral level, exist at the MS-level at other major universities, or reflect an emerging discipline. Examples include Bioinnovation, Computer Science, Biology, Zoology, and Environmental Biology & Chemistry.
The M.S. is NOT awarded simply for an accumulation of credits, but for a distinct and definable program of study.
Specific requirements for the Interdisciplinary Master of Science degree in the School of Science and Engineering may be found at the program website.
