JDP students have the possibility of completing the UC San Diego Cognitive Science Interdisciplinary Program (CSIP), which would  require individual student approval by the UC San Diego Grad Council. The Steering Committee decided that JDP students who have completed the first two years of coursework be allowed to apply to the program directors for permission to take CSIP courses that relate to their research. If a student is interested in this option, please first discuss it with the guidance committee and, with their approval, the directors. The CSIP option will also add extra time to the student’s program.
