The doctoral program has three main components: the coursework, which includes the program core, a major field and a minor field; the comprehensive exams; and the dissertation. The program of study requires a minimum of two years of residency (no fewer than four semesters enrolled for at least six (6) credit hours each excluding summer) devoted to coursework and other preparation for advancement to candidacy. A successful student will demonstrate mastery in these areas and thus be prepared to pursue upper-level careers in government, business, research, and academia.
