Interdisciplinary Graduate Programs

The College of Arts and Sciences is one of nine colleges and schools at the University of Miami. Several of our departments collaborate with faculty across the university to offer innovative interdisciplinary graduate programs.

  • • Early Modern Studies Concentration (Ph.D.) - The interdisciplinary concentration is earned in conjunction with the individual Ph.D. requirements for the departments of English, History, and Modern Languages and Literatures (Romance Studies, Spanish and French). Graduate students will continue to be housed in any one of the three departments and must fulfill the requirements of their discipline.
  • Environmental Science and Policy (Ph.D.) – This doctoral program is coordinated by the Abess Center for Ecosystem Science & Policy [] and includes coursework and research collaborations across seven different schools at the University of Miami.
  • • Marine Geology and Geophysics (M.S. and Ph.D.) – This program is offered through the Division of Marine Geology and Geophysics at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) All GSC faculty have joint or secondary appointments in MGG, and support students conducting research for graduate degree. Students are encouraged to investigate individual faculty research here.
  • Neuroscience (Ph.D.) – Created in 1992, the interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Neuroscience draws together 80 faculty members from the School of Medicine, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.
  • Theoretical and Mathematical Ecology Program (TME) – A collaboration between the Mathematics, Biology, and Computer Science departments in the College of Arts & Sciences and the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, the TME program offers joint Ph.D./MS degrees in Mathematics/Biology, Mathematics/Marine Science, Biology/Mathematics, and Marine Science/Mathematics.
