Approved in 2007, the Interdisciplinary PhD (ID PhD) program is intended for students whose academic interests cross multiple academic disciplines. ID PhD students typically have excellent academic records and a clear understanding of their research topic at the time of application. Doctoral students currently in program pursue studies in Arts and Humanities, Education, Business, Science, the Marine Institute, Medicine, Human Kinetics and Recreation, Engineering and Applied Science, and Music. The ID PhD offers an intimate and varied community in which students bring strong individual initiative together with the shared research concerns and expertise of a diverse supervisory committee in studies that cross traditional disciplinary borders.
Graduate applicants interested in research-based programs are strongly encouraged to find a faculty supervisor at the time of application. Visit the Interdisciplinary PhD program website for areas for a list of faculty members, their research interests, and contact information. You may also use the Yaffle search engine to find a supervisor you may wish to work with.
