Can I Create My Own Concentration??

YES!

Through an innovative and extensive advising process, students in the MDST degree program may elect to create a major concentration. This option is great for students who:

  • Have multiple subject-matter interests that cannot be aligned through more 'traditional' academic pathways...
  • Prefer a more interdisciplinary approach to pre-professional/graduate study (medical, dental, nursing, law, etc.)...
  • Seek more opportunities for practical experience in multiple fields (internships, research, capstone projects)...
  • May need to work full-time, are a caretaker, or are adult-learners returning to academic study...
  • Have faced academic, social, and/or life challenges that may inhibit or prohibit persistence in their initially chosen course of study...
