All Interdisciplinary Ph.D. applicants and students must first meet the general requirements of the School of Graduate Studies for admission and retention in the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. program. (General Graduate Academic Regulations and Information,Application Procedure and Minimum Criteria for Admission, Minimum Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Academic Regulations and Degree Requirements.) In addition to these general academic regulations that have been outlined in previous sections of the general catalog, disciplines may set more stringent discipline-specific requirements that take priority over the general requirements. Discipline-specific requirements for disciplines eligible to participate in the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. program are listed in alphabetical order by name of discipline. These guidelines are subject to ongoing review and revision, and the doctoral faculty reserves the right to make judicious changes in discipline-specific requirements. The student is referred to coordinators in the disciplines for the most current information.
