    *The PhD curriculum is subject to ongoing revisions and may change during a student’s tenure, including changes that affect graduation requirements.

    **Depending on the rate of progress toward achieving research goals, dissertation research often continues beyond the fourth-year of matriculation in the PhD program. The student’s dissertation committee determines when, and whether, sufficient research has been successfully completed to merit the PhD degree.
