The Thesis Proposal Examination consists of the preparation of a written research proposal 15 pages maximum and an oral presentation and defense of the same before a faculty committee. The topic, magnitude and significance of the proposed research should be suitable for the ensuing doctoral program. For most students, this thesis proposal exam will be taken during their second year in the graduate program. Failure to take the thesis proposal exam in a timely fashion, absent approval of a petition to the faculty for special consideration, constitutes a lack of satisfactory progress toward the PhD degree and constitutes grounds for removal from the PhD program. After scheduling the exam, the candidate informs the graduate program office by completing and submitting the Request for Thesis Proposal Examination Form.
