Interdisciplinary Programs

Interdisciplinary graduate degree programs at the University of Tulsa are degree programs where coursework from two or more academic departments is required to successfully complete the degree program. Completing the course of study results in the student earning a single degree in the combined disciplines.

Chemical Engineering students and students from other disciplines now have a research facility at the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve.

Chemical Engineering students and students from other disciplines now have a research facility at the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve. The $1.4 million research station in the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve is a joint venture between The University of Tulsa and the Oklahoma chapter of The Nature Conservancy. The preserve provides a 38,000 acre habitat for bison, and living research laboratory for numerous universities like the University of Tulsa.

"We now have, within a very special ecosystem, a building equipped to make research much more feasible and manageable," said Kerry Sublette, a TU chemical engineering professor who has conducted research in the Tallgrass Preserve since 1996. Sublette was the Principal Investigator on the grant which provided the funds for the construction of this 7,000 square foot building.

The new Tallgrass Prairie Research Station houses two furnished classrooms, two stocked laboratories, a specimen and collection room, two offices and a conference room that also houses a library. Students have many opportunities to observe the ecosystem while living at the facility.

All interdisciplinary programs require that the applicant be admitted by both academic departments. Admission requirements regarding standardized tests and other supporting documents vary by department and applicants should speak with the appropriate advisors prior to applying to a joint degree program.
