Students in the Applied Intercultural Arts Research PhD program at University of Arizona are required to develop a strong secondary area of expertise in a discipline relating to their research agenda.
For example, a student interested in questions of music cognition, such studying whether different kinds of music may help stroke patients regain speech abilities, would take courses in neuroscience, psychology, and/or cognitive sciences.
A core component of the curriculum for this degree is coursework in ethnomusicology.
Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs
The Graduate College sponsors several Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (GIDPs) in addition to the many interdisciplinary possibilities available through regular graduate degree programs.
GIDPs transcend departmental boundaries by facilitating cutting edge teaching and research at the nexus of traditional disciplines. The high value placed on interdisciplinary research and education is indicative of The University of Arizona’s enthusiasm and commitment to fostering innovation and creativity among its faculty and students.
- The aim of the program is to prepare graduates for the application of knowledge of music, arts and culture to contemporary problem-solving to enhance the health and well-being of individuals, societies, and environments in an interconnected world.
“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
