Graduate Interdisciplinary Program

The University of Arizona offers a Ph.D.in Neuroscience through the Graduate Interdisciplinary Program. The Program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and tools that they will need to embark on careers as educators and researchers in the field of neuroscience. Students participate in designing their own individually tailored programs that provide a thorough base of knowledge in the many facets of neuroscience as well as depth in chosen areas of specialization. Because of the breadth of expertise represented by faculty, students have access to education and research training opportunities in areas ranging from molecular, cellular, systems, behavioral, cognitive, theoretical, and clinical neuroscience.

Ancient Fossil Reveals Oldest Known Circulatory System

A fossil creature buried in an "invertebrate version of Pompeii" more than half a billion years ago reveals the first-known cardiovascular system in exquisitely preserved detail. "This is the first preserved vascular system that we know of," said Nicholas Strausfeld, a Regents' Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Arizona's Department of Neuroscience, who helped analyze the find.

Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs Build Collaboration, Productivity

Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs Build Collaboration, Productivity
Across campus, UA students and faculty in the sciences and social sciences are engaged in novel research in 15 Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs, which are considered the "crown jewels" of the University.

Through advanced interdisciplinary programs at the University of Arizona, students and faculty are engaged in novel work to answer questions critical to the state and nation.

Q&A: The Importance of the UA's Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs

During the 1960s, the UA was a trailblazer in establishing a new type of interdisciplinary program for students: the Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs, or GIDPs.

Today, many of the UA's GIDPs are top-ranking programs in the nation, raising the institution's visibility and notoriety.
