Independent Interdisciplinary Graduate Program
The I-IGP Curriculum is designed to allow maximum flexibility so that a student may tailor his/her program to individual needs. Therefore, a common core set of courses is not required. However, to ensure training in responsible conduct of research and to broaden professional development, students in the I-IGP will be expected to complete one course in each of the following areas:
- GRAD 590 - Independent Interdisciplinary Communications | 3 Credits
Additionally two 3 credit courses are required:
- A course inside the student's home department
- A course outside the student's home department
The student’s advisory committee will meet at least annually to monitor the student’s progress in these areas as well as his/her research.
Preliminary and final examinations will be established by the student’s advisory committee. (If a qualifier is required, it needs to reflect the interdisciplinarity of the student's course of study.)
The I-IGP is an interdisciplinary endeavor administered through the Graduate School. The Office of Interdisciplinary Graduate Programs works with the sponsoring departments to create collaborative partnerships for the success of I-IGP students.
