MI Program Option: Collaborative Specializations


About Collaborative Specializations

  • Are available to students who are enrolled in a graduate degree program
  • Emerge from cooperation between two or more graduate units, e.g., faculties, departments, centres, or institutes
  • Provide students with a broad base from which to explore interdisciplinary areas
  • Allow students to pursue specialized subject interests, or special developments within particular disciplines
  • Are designed to allow a focus in the area of specialty

Students must:

  • Be admitted to, and enrolled in, one of the collaborating graduate units
  • Fulfill all the degree program requirements in the home unit
  • Fulfill any additional requirements of the specific collaborative program

Upon completion of the collaborative specialization, students’ transcripts will denote a specialization in the particular program area.
