Comprehensive Examinations

Students must take a Major and a Minor comprehensive examination in two different fields of focus.

Each field is guided by a committee, consisting of those faculty members who teach in the area. Each field committee determines committee membership, requirements for comprehensive exams, exam structure, and reading lists in that field.
