Special interdisciplinary Ph.D. programs may be arranged for
individual students who wish to pursue subjects that cut across the
boundaries of program curricula.
A student who seeks the Ph.D.
in an area requiring the services of two or more programs should
consult interested faculty members and then submit a formal proposal to
the dean of the Graduate School-New Brunswick outlining a program of
study. Courses, examinations, the dissertation topic, and the names of
faculty members who have consented to serve as the student's committee
must have the approval of the directors of the Ph.D. programs involved.
Once approved by the dean, the student will be transferred into the
interdisciplinary Ph.D. program code (554) for registration purposes. A
member of the Graduate School-New Brunswick academic staff serves as
graduate director of this program.

Graduate School-New Brunswick, 25 Bishop Place, New Brunswick, NJ
