Dissertation Committee

After completing the required coursework and passing the Qualifying Examination, students begin work on the Dissertation: the final component of doctoral study.  The first step in completing the Dissertation is to form a Committee.

To ensure that the appointed Committee has the appropriate expertise, breadth within the discipline, and independence to ensure a fair assessment of the Dissertation, approval of the make-up of the Dissertation Committee rests with the Program Director.

Please complete and submit the Dissertation Committee Form to notify the Program of your progress toward completing the degree and to request a review of the composition of your Committee.
