Departments & Institutes

Students enter graduate study in the Fall term, which is structured to expose students to meaningful research experiences and innovative curriculum before a formal commitment to a specific PhD graduate program (see below for details). Students join a Department or Institute-based PhD graduate program in January of the 1st year, and ultimately obtain their degree from that program. Our graduate programs award PhD degrees that involve original, thesis-based, independent research.
