The Ph.D. program requires a minimum of three academic years (6 semesters) for completion: two-years (4 semesters) of coursework prior to the dissertation stage and one full year (2 semesters) for dissertation work. Students must complete the program within seven years.
Students enter the program annually and normally progress on a two-year schedule of coursework (at most a 4-year schedule of coursework), followed by the comprehensive exam and the writing of a successful dissertation.
