Что я буду изучать?

Doctoral programs must consist of a minimum of 30 units for students who have a Master’s degree, 45 units for students without a Master’s degree. No more than 3.0 units of work at the senior baccalaureate level may be taken for credit in a doctoral program. These credits include credit unit values of coursework, candidacy and dissertation combined. The Ph.D. thesis (INTD 699) must count for between 15.0-30.0 units. Doctoral programs must include INTD 693 (Candidacy Preparation): 3.0 units. A doctoral program will normally be completed in three to five years and must be completed within seven years.

a. Candidacy Exam: The candidacy exam is intended to demonstrate a student’s knowledge of his or her field of study and the student’s ability to undertake the research. All students registered in the Interdisciplinary PhD program are required to successfully complete a candidacy examination within the first three years of their registration.

b. Dissertation: The doctoral dissertation must embody original work and constitute a significant contribution to knowledge in the candidate’s fields of study. It should contain evidence of broad knowledge of the relevant literature, and should demonstrate a critical understanding of the works of scholars closely related to the subject of the dissertation.

c. Oral Exam: Students may proceed to an oral examination when the supervisory committee is satisfied that the dissertation represents an examinable document for the degree requirements. The supervisory committee confirms this by signing the Request for Oral Examination form. This form must be submitted to the Office of the Dean of Graduate Studies at least 30 working days before the anticipated date of the oral examination. In the case of a PhD oral, the Request for Oral Examination form must be accompanied by a current CV from the external examiner, as well as a signed arm’s-length form from each supervisor. The student must upload their dissertation to Course Spaces prior to submitting the Request for Oral Examination.
