Interdisciplinary Graduate Program
The Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in the Faculty of Graduate Studies is part of an ongoing effort to promote interdisciplinarity in the University of Calgary. It complements both disciplinary degrees that offer opportunities for bridging traditional fields and interdisciplinary degrees that cross Faculty boundaries. It offers customized, student-driven programs of study that integrate knowledge originating in at least two established academic disciplines or interdisciplinary degrees without sacrificing disciplinary rigor. It achieves this balance of interdisciplinarity and disciplinarity through the composition of the supervisory committee, the required courses, the thesis research, and, for PhD students, the candidacy examination.
The University of Calgary is a Killam Institution. PhD applicants to the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program must have the academic qualifications necessary for consideration for Killam scholarships. Applicants who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada must be eligible for consideration for Tri-Council awards. All applicants must meet eligibility criteria for holding graduate awards administered by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. They must also meet eligibility criteria for receiving funding from the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program.
