Students who are enrolled in a doctoral program in one of the participating units may apply to the Institute of Political Economy for admission to the Collaborative Specialization. Admission to the specialization is determined by the Specialization Committee and will normally take place before the end of the first year of registration in one of the participating doctoral programs. Admission requirements to the Collaborative Ph.D. with a Specialization in Political Economy are: registration in the Ph.D. program of one of the participating units; registration in, or successful completion of, at least one course or comprehensive field with political economy content. This will normally be a course offered by the student's home unit but could also be selected from appropriate courses in other units. See Selection of Courses for a list of acceptable courses; and selection of a thesis topic with political economy content. The Specialization Committee will determine, in consultation with the supervisor, if the political economy content of the thesis meets the requirements of the Collaborative Specialization.
