Dissertation Requirements

Once enrolled in dissertation credit, students must continuously enroll for a minimum of 3 credits every subsequent Fall and Spring semester until the dissertation is completed. Summer enrollment is required only if the student is actively engaged in dissertation work and using university resources.

The Program requires that students successfully defend their dissertation proposal by November 15th, 2013 for an internship beginning in 2014, or by November 1st every year thereafter.

Students may begin formal dissertation work after they have been advanced to candidacy, which requires completion of the candidacy research project and the comprehensive exam.

See Doctoral Handbook for dissertation procedures.
