The School of Health and Exercise Sciences offers a PhD through the Interdisciplinary Graduate Studies (IGS) program program at UBC’s Okanagan campus. IGS offers students opportunities to pursue graduate studies across disciplinary boundaries, and to tailor their course of study to suit their particular needs. IGS programs are greatly facilitated by our smaller size, thereby allowing students to work more intimately with faculty across a variety of departments and disciplines. The structure allows for both interfaculty and intercampus arrangements for supervision and courses. The course and program requirements provide structure to ensure quality in both the breadth and depth of the student’s academic experience.
The College of Graduate Studies is responsible for merit-based graduate awards at the Okanagan campus of the University of British Columbia. The College manages a number of award competitions each year and administers payment of all internal awards and selected external awards. Please visit the College of Graduate Studies for more information on application information.
For information on program progression, including Thesis & Dissertation and Deadlines, please visit the College of Graduate Studies web page for Current Students.
The Library, in partnership with the College of Graduate Studies, now offers a Thesis Formatting Service to all graduate students. The service respects the academic purpose and integrity of the thesis writing and submission process and includes services such as:
Formatting of table of contents, lists of figures, tables and illustrations.
Formatting of margins, line spacing, indentation, title pages and page numbering, headers and footers.
Text formatting, including styling headings, case correction and pagination.
