Ph.D. Program

Overview

The Ph.D. program is designed to prepare students for a career in research. As such, it requires considerable self-directed study and independent research. The Ph.D. program is individually tailored to each student, requiring close cooperation between the student and his or her research adviser. Students are expected to identify their area of research during the first year of study, obtaining a faculty adviser who will agree to supervise the dissertation research. (The adviser may or may not be the acting adviser assigned to the student when initially admitted to the program.)
