Genetics Ph.D.

The coordinator of the genetics graduate program, with the concurrence of the student's thesis adviser, nominates the student's guidance and doctoral committees which administer the qualifying and final examinations, respectively. Doctoral students are expected to have a broad exposure to genetics courses, exceeding that required of master's degree students. Specific course requirements are developed by the student and the guidance committee. Upon completion of coursework, the student must pass an oral qualifying examination conducted by the guidance committee in order to advance to candidacy. Doctoral students must complete a dissertation on original research in genetics and orally defend their dissertation before the doctoral committee.
