Why do I have to choose MA in Interdisciplinary Studies (MAIS) When I apply for MSDA?

The Chancellor of California State University System approved MSDA as a new SJSU graduate degree program in May 2018.  MSDA doesn’t have sufficient time to establish a new major code for Cal State Apply.  MAIS is a current major and has been selected as the temporary holder for the Fall 2018 admission cycle only.  Upon receiving your application, SJSU will transfer your documents to MSDA for evaluation.  You’ll receive an MSDA degree when you satisfactorily complete the degree requirements.
