Doctor of Philosophy
The interdisciplinary Ph.D. 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 department offers a doctoral degree.
Interdisciplinary Ph.D. (INPR) program requirements are specified online, on the Graduate School website.
Students may take a maximum of 12 credit hours prior to the approval of the Degree Proposal and Plan. During that time, students develop the Degree Proposal and Plan as specified online.
Interdisciplinary doctoral students must complete a minimum of 30 credit hours of course work beyond the master’s degree, satisfactorily complete a doctoral qualifying examination, complete 12 dissertation credits and successfully defend a dissertation.
Annual progress reports written by the student and endorsed by the dissertation committee chair must be submitted to the University Board of Graduate Studies (UBGS) in April of each year.
