The doctoral program is designed to allow the well-prepared student to complete course requirements for the PhD in two years of full-time study. Students complete a research paper in their second year and take comprehensive examinations during their third year, followed by preparation of a dissertation. The current PhD Requirements provides a complete description of graduate requirements, including an explanation of fields of focus themes.
