POLICIES & PROCEDURES

 

ENHANCED CREDENTIALS

While PhD education is highly specialized and focused, graduate students may find it beneficial to develop knowledge and skills beyond their own discipline to address increasingly complex research problems and to enhance their professional development. In addition to collaborative interdisciplinary research projects and centers, Washington University offers numerous opportunities for individual graduate students to broaden their doctoral education.
