Curriculum

 chae at the hood

Students entering the MERGE-ID track begin their studies the first week of July. Students will complete a portion of their work with PhD students enrolled in their home program and also complete MERGE-ID specific courses and activities that will substitute for some requirements of the home program.  The chart below provides an overview of the curriculum.  Other pages on our site provide additional details about different aspects of the training.
