Dual-title Ph.D. Program in Psychology and Gerontology
KU is implementing a dual-title Ph.D. option in Psychology and Gerontology. The dual-title degree will enable students at KU to meet the challenge of undertaking graduate education in the emerging, interdisciplinary field of gerontology that is combined with training in established, traditional disciplines. Interested students apply and are admitted to the psychology Ph.D. program. After completing an M.A. in psychology, they may apply to undertake the dual-title option. The student’s diploma will carry the name of both fields.
This option is designed to appeal to students who are strong in a traditional discipline but also motivated to study across disciplinary lines. In the course of study, students can avail themselves of disciplinary depth and interdisciplinary breadth.
