Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (Graduate IDPs):

About the Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs:

Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (IDPs) at The University of Arizona have emerged in response to the changing face of scholarship and research. Advances in science and technology, along with increased globalization, have altered the ways we perceive scientific and social investigation and education. We have come to recognize the need for crossing departmental boundaries in exploring more integrated approaches to problem solving. The fusion of ideas, techniques, and expertise from the traditional academic fields provides for the evolution of modern and imaginative methods of research, and the creation of new fields of endeavor. Promoting interdisciplinary research and education is one of the ways that The University of Arizona is fostering innovation and creativity among its faculty and students. The National Science Foundation has recognized "the need for a cadre of broadly prepared Ph.D.s with multidisciplinary backgrounds and the technical, professional, and personal skills essential to addressing the varied career demands of the future." The University of Arizona and its Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs embrace this philosophy and have provided excellent research and educational facilities to attract the best and brightest students to the area of interdisciplinary research.
