When a student’s knowledge base crosses over two or more disciplines and cannot be accommodated by an existing U of A graduate program, an Individualized Interdisciplinary program may be proposed. Applicants should have a superior academic record with substantial background in at least one of the proposed disciplines.
Students considering an individualized program should first contact U of A departments offering areas of research in which they're interested. The Individualized Interdisciplinary Proposal form must be completed by the student and the participating departments, then submitted to the Dean, Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research.
