Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Ph.D. - Interdisciplinary

Format: Campus

Program Description:

This doctoral program provides students and faculty with opportunities for creative customized academic programming and research that crosses the boundaries of traditional disciplines.

Each student's program is reviewed by the Graduate School and is subject to approval by the University Board of Graduate Studies, which acts as the governing department.

Any INPR program must combine course work and expertise from two or more academic departments at Marquette. Faculty may serve on an INPR committee whether or not their departments offer doctoral degrees.

Due to the unique nature of the interdisciplinary program, only students who demonstrate a high degree of self-reliance and responsibility will be considered for admission. In addition, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  1. The student must have completed a master’s degree or its equivalent.
  2. The student normally must have a graduate GPA of 3.500 or above, on a 4.000 scale, in their master’s degree (or equivalent graduate work). If the student has less than a 3.500 cumulative GPA, the results of a current (within five years) standardized examination such as the GRE, GMAT, or LSAT will be required.
