|Students take a comprehensive exam in May or early June of the second year. In the remainder of the program, students conduct independent dissertation research with an advisor and dissertation committee.|
In their first year, students are assigned to faculty members for an assistantship based on their research interests. In the following years, students rotate to work with different faculty members so they get exposure to other research topics and approaches.
In the first year, most students take a course in teaching pedagogy. Students typically teach one class each of three semesters (or two semesters and a summer) during their third and fourth years, and one class during their fifth year.
