The first year of the PhD program is the third year of the DM curriculum.
The second year of the PhD program is organized as a series of 2-3 day research workshops which take place two times during the Fall semester and two times during the Spring semester. During these workshops, the student presents and discusses his/her dissertation work. The program also includes independent study of relevant research literature as recommended by the student’s dissertation committee.
