Graduate Program Director - GPD

The Director is the person you will work closely with to discuss your proposed area of inquiry and to forge a path that includes the successful attainment of three wise scholars who will encircle your research. Directors can be appointed from any program across YorkU and are often very interdisciplinary themselves.
