D. Interdisciplinary Degrees

A student wishing to pursue a thesis-based Master’s or doctoral degree in an area not sufficiently represented by one graduate program can request to do an interdisciplinary degree. In an interdisciplinary degree program, the student is admitted to both a home program and a conjoint program. The student submits an application form and fee along with official transcripts and letters of reference to the proposed home program, which will liaise with the proposed conjoint program. Further details regarding the application process to an interdisciplinary degree program are available at
