Our graduates are well prepared to further their education at the doctoral level. Students who wish to carry out doctoral studies at the University of Manitoba with an Advisor from Family Social Sciences have three options.
- The PhD in Applied Health Sciences. This is a unique multi-disciplinary program delivered collaboratively by four units: Human Ecology, Kinesiology and Recreation Management, Nursing, and Medical Rehabilitation.
- The PhD in Individual Interdisciplinary Studies. The Faculty of Graduate Studies allows students with a proven track record the special opportunity of registering in Individual Interdisciplinary Studies (IIS). It combines substantial aspects of at least two departments into a unique interdisciplinary program which lies outside traditional disciplinary boundaries. The IIS program places additional demands and responsibilities upon the student to assemble a committee and to formulate a research proposal and program in advance of admission.
- The PhD in Peace and Conflict Studies. Several FSS faculty members are adjunct professors in this program and are eligible to supervise doctoral students accepted into this program.
