Interdepartmental Ph.D. Programs
Occasionally, students may desire a program that overlaps with other departments, in which case content and depth ought to meet doctoral standards. At the initiative of the student, and with the approval of faculty members of each department, arrangements can be made to have the Dean of the Graduate School appoint a committee to guide the entire Ph.D. program. For details see the MIT Graduate Student Manual. A joint degree program with the Department of Urban Studies and Planning now exists.
