All students are required to complete at least 32 units of emphasis area course work. Each student and his or her faculty adviser proceed within the framework of one of the emphases listed below to select 32 units of emphasis area course work and complete other degree requirements. Alternatively, students with interests across two or more of these emphasis areas may work with their faculty advisers to select an appropriate combination of course work that draws from more than one emphasis.
On April 19th, the Graduate Group in Education invited its faculty and PhD students to display posters of their 2015/16 conference presentations. This is a great opportunity for students to display their enthusiasm and excitement for their research while learning about others’ work as well.
There is no specific length of time associated with earning a PhD. Across disciplines and campuses, the average amount of time to earn the degree is between four and five years, although individual time varies widely.
