Academic Advising and Progress Review

Once you have been admitted to the program, you will be assigned a temporary advisor who will help you develop an individualized plan for completing your degree requirements. This assignment will be based largely on the statement-of-purpose that you submit along with your application.

You will be expected to select a permanent advisor by the end of your second semester in residence. Your progress will be reviewed each spring by the Department's faculty. You will receive a written evaluation, including recommendations for remedial work when appropriate.

Normally, students are expected to complete the program within two years.
