Degrees and Programs

The School of Integrative Studies (SIS) offers three undergraduate majors and eight minors.  Integrative studies majors select a concentration or work with student services staff to develop their own concentration, uniquely suited to their academic and career goals. Similarly, environmental and sustainability studies majors select a concentration that matches their personal aspirations. 

Students intending to pursue advanced degrees can combine their undergraduate studies with graduate work and attain an accelerated masters degree while at Mason. Many SIS concentrations can be combined with graduate programs in the following Mason colleges and schools:

  • College of Humanities and Social Sciences,
  • College of Education and Human Development,
  • College of Health and Human Services,
  • Shar School of Policy and Government and
  • Scalia Law School.

Specific details can be found on each concentration’s program page.

SIS also offers the following three semester-long programs that combine coursework and internships:

  • The Non-Profit Fellows (in Arlington),
  • The Social Innovation Fellows (in Arlington), and
  • The Smithsonian-Mason Semester (in Front Royal).

These programs give students the chance to focus deeply on one area of study and pair their coursework with hands-on professional experience. 

Through SIS, students create a college experience that prepares them for a future with meaning and impact.
