QERM: An Interdisciplinary Graduate Program

Degree Programs

The QERM program offers two graduate degrees, the Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). Each require the preparation of a thesis or dissertation, respectively.

The completion of a M.S. degree, with thesis, is normally required before entering the QERM Ph.D. program. Students admitted at the pre-master's level might, under exceptional circumstances, apply to proceed directly to post-master’s study after completing a Master’s Degree By-Pass.

Program Areas of Emphasis

QERM program students can pursue a wide variety of thesis and dissertation research. Examples of student research topics are illustrated by the list of prior thesis and dissertation titles. Faculty areas of research can be determined by reviewing the QERM Faculty Research section.
