Graduate School Interdisciplinary Programs

The UW Graduate School supports interdisciplinary activities as part of its core mission to champion innovation and excellence in graduate education.

  • The Graduate School incubates interdisciplinary initiatives: offering support for the creation of truly interdisciplinary initiatives.
  • The Graduate School sustains interdisciplinary programs: providing advocacy and management for its interdisciplinary programs.
  • The Graduate School houses interdisciplinary programs: offering a home for interdisciplinary graduate degree and certificate programs as well as non-degree-offering interdisciplinary committees.

As outlined in Graduate School Policy 4.4, each Graduate School interdisciplinary program is overseen by a dedicated Interdisciplinary Faculty Group consisting of graduate faculty whose appointments, teaching, and research span multiple schools or colleges.
