How will dissertation defenses (and proposal defenses) take place? What about comprehensive exams?
GSAS is suspending the requirements relating to in-person participation in dissertation defenses and proposal defenses until further notice. For the time being, any and all participants will be able to attend a defense that has been arranged to take place online. The doctoral program will schedule the event via Zoom. Likewise, the oral component of the comprehensive exam should be conducted via Zoom.
