The interdisciplinary program in Applied Intercultural Arts Research (AIAR) program is managed by the Graduate College and offers a Master of Arts and a PhD in partnership with six other academic colleges: Education, Fine Arts, Humanities, Science, Social and Behavioral Science, and Public Health.
This program seeks applicants interested in solving problems that may be informed by music and the arts. Beyond that it seeks applicants interested in the range of arts experiences in the world’s many cultures. The AIAR MA degree recognizes the value of arts research to a wide range of disciplines.
Most applicants will want to apply directly to the AIAR PhD. The MA is an shorter program option and is available to applicants who have strong training or skills in music but who may have earned bachelor's degrees in other fields.
The aim of the program is to prepare graduates for the application of knowledge of music, arts and culture to contemporary problem-solving to enhance the health and well-being of individuals, societies, and environments in an interconnected world.
The Graduate College sponsors several Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (GIDPs) in addition to the many interdisciplinary possibilities available through regular graduate degree programs. GIDPs transcend departmental boundaries by facilitating cutting edge teaching and research at the nexus of traditional disciplines. The high value placed on interdisciplinary research and education is indicative of The University of colorado's enthusiasm and commitment to fostering innovation and creativity among its faculty and students.
