What are the general curriculum requirements?

  • This is a research degree, thus much of the time, effort, and credits are research credits, rather than course credits.  The 60 credits are distributed as follows: 
  • Course credits (12 credits that include the following 4 research methods courses) 
  • 18 credits of other pre-dissertation work, which will be some mix of directed research credits and additional courses as worked out with your advisor 
  • 30 credits of dissertation research during which you are working on a substantial research project with guidance from your advisor
