Why pursue a Doctorate in an Individualized Program?
Integrate concepts and methodologies from various disciplines to get a deeper understanding of a research problem. Work with stellar researchers across academic faculties who will encourage you to develop innovative solutions to our most critical challenges.
The PhD in the Individualized Program (INDI) provides you with the opportunity to pursue specific research goals in areas not covered by existing graduate programs. Under the mentorship of a supervisory committee, you will have access to resources within and across faculties as you explore topics outside the normal boundaries of research and creation.
Benefit from a plethora of research units that provide training in areas as diverse as game studies and design, preventative health, and synthetic biology. Montreal is also a hub for innovation and art, providing the ideal backdrop for you to develop research-creation projects and make connections with cutting-edge start-ups.
Examples of areas our students are currently exploring include:
- food and community resilience in the Northeast of Brazil
- the treatment and management of severe obesity in youth and young adults
- sustained exergaming in adolescents
- environmental governance in the Eeyou Istchee Cree territory of Quebec
Join a heterogeneous community of students who are self-driven and find success in a variety of professional careers within and outside of academia.
