The Ph.D. program in Interdisciplinary Health Sciences is for people who hold a master's degree in an area related to health and human services and are interested in furthering their careers as researchers, higher education faculty, and leaders of interdisciplinary approaches to problem solving.
Students are encouraged to develop their in-depth knowledge within chosen areas through cognate courses and a research practicum. Program and interdisciplinary faculty, across the College of Health and Human Services and beyond, provide supportive mentoring in a context of rigorous standards and expectations.
Thus, it aims to address current and pending national shortages in doctoral level faculty across the fields of health and human services. Graduates are prepared to assume leadership positions in other venues as well.
