Interdisciplinary Graduate Studies

An opportunity to create an individualized program of study

The School of Nursing participates in the Interdisciplinary Graduate Studies (IGS) program at UBC, which offers students opportunities to pursue graduate studies across disciplinary boundaries, and to tailor their course of study to suit their particular needs. At UBC’s Okanagan campus, IGS programs are greatly facilitated by our smaller size, thereby allowing students to work more intimately with faculty across a variety of departments and disciplines. The structure allows for both interfaculty and intercampus arrangements for supervision and courses. The course and program requirements provide structure to ensure quality in both the breadth and depth of the student’s academic experience. Students may obtain a graduate degree at the Master or Ph.D. level.

Details on the IGS Program can be found in the Academic Calendar or on the College of Graduate Studies website.
