A Collaborative Specialization is an intra-university graduate field of study that provides an additional multidisciplinary experience for students enrolled in and completing the degree requirements for one of a number of approved Master’s and/or PhD programs. Students meet the admission requirements of, and register in, the participating (or “home”) program but complete, in addition to the degree requirements of that program, the additional requirements specified by the Collaborative Specialization. The degree conferred is that of the home program, and the completion of the Collaborative Specialization is indicated by a transcript notation indicating the additional specialization that has been attained (e.g., PhD in Chemistry with specialization in Molecular Imaging).

Participating Degree Programs: Biochemistry MSc; Chemistry MSc; Pathology MSc; Anatomy and Cell Biology MSc (Clinical); Anatomy and Cell Biology MSc (Research); Microbiology and Immunology MSc; Medical Biophysics MSc; Biochemistry PhD; Chemistry PhD; Pathology PhD; Anatomy and Cell Biology PhD; Microbiology and Immunology PhD; Medical Biophysics PhD
