The Consilience doctoral program is a unique offering of ITU and is among the first, if not the very first, of such programs offered by any university domestic or international. It is a forward-looking program that addresses a developing unfulfilled gap in university offerings that will become only wider in the future if not addressed at this time. Other universities (e.g., Princeton) are beginning to offer courses addressing some issues of consilience, but none, to my knowledge, have yet developed or offered a comprehensive, focused program of study leading to the PhD degree.
