Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)

Our Doctor of Philosophy graduate program is more research-based, rather than entirely course-based. The Ph.D. degree is awarded on the basis of substantial original research; the Ph.D. has a prerequisite of an MA degree and requires the student to write a 150-200-page dissertation on a topic centered around the students selected concentration.

NOTE: Required courses for each degree program are subject to change without notice or upon the recommendation of one of our academic adviser.
