Custom Programs

Custom programs are designed with the needs of individual students in mind. They offer a one-of-a-kind, comprehensive course of study that prepares the next generation highly qualified researchers.

INRS can approve a custom graduate diploma (DESS), master’s, or PhD program in special situations, such as when none of the existing INRS programs align with the student’s academic needs but the school has the required resources and capacity.

  • Custom DESS (30 credits)
  • Custom master’s with thesis (45 credits)
  • Custom PhD (90 credits)


If you have any questions about custom programs, please contact the Registrar’s Office at or 418-654-2518. If you’re calling from outside Quebec, dial the toll free number, 1-877-326-5762.
