Director's Welcome

Welcome to Memorial University of Newfoundland’s Interdisciplinary PhD Program, housed in the School of Graduate Studies. Doctoral students currently in program pursue studies in a broad range of disciplines and faculties, such as Humanities and Social Sciences, Education, Business, Science, the Marine Institute, Medicine, Human Kinetics and Recreation, Engineering and Applied Science, Mathematics/Physics 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. Applicants are encouraged to take an active part not only in shaping their interdisciplinary research projects, but also in putting together their committees of supervisors from across any of Memorial’s faculties and schools. As Director, I look forward to this next term in the Interdisciplinary PhD Program at Memorial University, and if you have any questions about our program, please contact me at
