Office of Interdisciplinary Graduate Programs (OIGP)

The Office of Interdisciplinary Graduate Programs

The Office of Interdisciplinary Graduate Programs (OIGP) was established in 2004 to promote and facilitate cross-disciplinary research at Purdue. Since its inception, enrollment in igp’s has nearly doubled.

A high point of the year is the OIGPs Annual Spring Reception. A mix of poster and PowerPoint presentations, the reception highlights the breadth and depth of interdisciplinary research at Purdue. Over 90 students participated in this year’s event including graduate students from interdisciplinary programs and those working on collaborative projects from programs outside of the OIGP.

The office has created an Interdisciplinary Graduate Programs Student Advisory Board (IGPSA) that gives students a direct voice to the Graduate School. The IGPSA represents the diverse needs of interdisciplinary students, and seeks new avenues of recognition for IGP students at the university.

The interdisciplinary graduate programs under the OIGP umbrella include: American Studies, Comparative Literature, Linguistics, Comparative Medicine, Computational Life Sciences, Computational Science and Engineering, Ecological Sciences and Engineering, Food Science, Gerontology, Information Security, Ingestive Behavior, Life Sciences, Nutrition, Philosophy and Literature, Women’s Studies, and the Independent Interdisciplinary Graduate Program.
