Curriculum & Timeline – Advanced Years

After passing the Qualifying Exam, the student will spend full-time on their thesis research, while continuing to attend seminars, journal clubs, and other educational meetings. Students are welcome to audit courses in which they have an interest. Finally, each graduating student writes a dissertation describing his/her research, presents the work in a public seminar and defends it before his/her Thesis Advisory Committee.
