PhD Seminar

Each student is required to participate in the departmental research seminar each semester they are in residence. This bi-weekly seminar provides an opportunity for faculty, students and outside guests to share their research methodology and findings.

While students are expected to participate in the seminar each year, they must sign up for the seminar at least once. This is typically done during the student's second year. The formal requirements of the seminar are for the student to present a piece of original research in his or her second year. Students earn three graduate credits for each seminar.
