Auburn Phillips was looking for something different in a graduate program. She found it at the U of L.

Given the opportunity to have your student experience defined for you or to have the ability to create a custom educational plan tailored to your interests, the choice is obvious, particularly when it comes to undertaking graduate studies.

After completing her undergraduate degree, Auburn Phillips (MA ’12) was looking for a graduate program she could customize to meet her individual needs. The U of L’s Individualized Multidisciplinary Master of Arts was the perfect fit because it is designed specifically for students seeking a customized approach to their graduate studies.

In addition to an attractive funding package available for graduate students, Auburn connected with faculty interested in supporting her work.

“My supervisors were very supportive and helped me develop the skills I needed to succeed,” explains Auburn, who specialized in women and gender studies while also working with experts in education, sociology and anthropology. This diversity allowed her to take a multidisciplinary approach to her research.

"With the flexibility to study and conduct research across disciplines, the individualized multidisciplinary major in the MA program provided a customized degree opportunity.”
