Interdepartmental Ph.D. Programs
Occasionally, students may desire a program that overlaps with other
departments, and which in content and depth meets 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.
