The Interdisciplinary PhD program is designed to meet the needs of an increasing number of highly motivated, experienced, and highly qualified students looking for research opportunities which cut across disciplinary boundaries. In some cases, the research incorporates the insights of two or three traditional disciplines; in others the research itself is in an interdisciplinary field such as environment, health administration, international development, or information management.

The following interdisciplinary areas are particularly well represented at the university (the main relevant Faculties are indicated in parentheses): Ocean Studies (Science, Arts & Social Sciences, Law, Management, Engineering); Health Studies (Health Professions, Medicine, Science); Environmental Studies (Management, Health Professions, Architecture and Planning, Arts & Social Sciences, Engineering, Law); Management Studies (Management, Health Professions, Law, Arts and Social Sciences); and Health Informatics (Computer Science and Medicine).
