Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Multidisciplinary Committee-Directed PhD

Format: Campus

Program Description:

This option is designed to meet the needs of highly qualified and motivated doctoral students who have academic interests that cannot be met by a single, existing UWM doctoral program. Those who have been admitted to this program typically have identified a multidisciplinary research topic before applying to a UWM doctoral program. It is the applicant's responsibility to identify members of the UWM graduate faculty who would provide the necessary expertise and guidance for developing the multidisciplinary program proposal, and to obtain confirmation from these faculty that they are willing to serve as committee members through the completion of the program. Students in this program are subject to all general Graduate School requirements for doctoral programs, including, but not limited to, minimum credits, residency, time limit, preliminary examination, proposal hearing, committee membership, and the dissertation defense.
