Ph.D. Program Requirements

The Ph.D. program begins with 2 years of coursework (3 years for doctoral students entering directly from undergraduate studies). The program normally takes 5 years to complete, though some fields with significant language requirements may take longer.

Specific program requirements vary slightly based on the Field of Study you choose. Those requirements are listed below.
