Description The IDPhD program is designed to allow students to master methodological skills to address a problem or issue through a combination of disciplinary approaches, under the guidance of outstanding scholars, many of whom have moved to interdisciplinary questions from the more traditional disciplines. As of early 2013, there are some 65 students in the program and in 2012-2013 thirteen students completed their degrees. We provide a list of the projects currently underway as well as completed theses. The focus of our program is focused primarily on successful and timely completion, with courses and comprehensive examinations organized with the thesis first in mind. Our program attracts academically successful, highly motivated, independent-minded researchers who are risk-oriented. Our graduates go on to work as scholar-researchers, teachers, and leaders in many fields, such as environmental studies, health, human performance, computer studies, management, social justice, and international development. Many of these emerging areas welcome students with an interdisciplinary training.
