This doctoral program provides students and faculty with opportunities for creative academic programming and research that cross the boundaries of traditional disciplines. Instead of being supported by an individual department, school or college, each student’s program is administered by an interdisciplinary faculty committee. The faculty committee shall be approved by the Graduate School. The interdisciplinary program itself shall be approved by, and under the oversight of, the University Board of Graduate Studies.
Each INPR program must combine the academic and intellectual assets, in terms of course work and faculty expertise, of two or more academic departments at Marquette. Faculty may serve on an INPR committee whether or not their departments offer doctoral degrees. The University Board of Graduate Studies serves to a great extent as a quasi department. Every program is unique in terms of course work, methodology and research.
