What is a typical doctoral program course load?

While much of the program is highly individualized, all students will be enrolled in approximately two full-time years of course work, plus time for tutorials, research projects, examinations, and dissertation work. All students also conduct an intensive individualized research practicum, or a research assistantship, in conjunction with a current faculty research project. For the complete descriptions of courses and program policies, go to Doctoral Program Resource Guide (PDF: 83 pages), which offers Sample Student Schedules.
