Ad Hoc Interdisciplinary Degree Option

Planning the Graduate Program  > Ad Hoc Interdisciplinary Degree Option

Departments granting graduate degrees are authorized to modify their regularly established graduate course requirements in individual cases to permit a larger component of course work outside the department. In these instances, the dean of the college in which the sponsoring department is located must approve the design of the ad hoc interdisciplinary curriculum. The dean also approves the names of the faculty drawn from both the sponsoring department and supporting departments responsible for directing the student’s progress through the curriculum and thesis/dissertation. A copy of the form indicating the dean’s approval is forwarded to The Graduate School for final approval. Graduate-level students interested in this option should consult the director of graduate studies in the appropriate department about its availability.
