Qualifying Paper

To aid in the preparation of a dissertation proposal and to determine the weaknesses and strengths in the student's preparation, students must complete and defend a qualifying paper that consists of a comprehensive review of the literature on a topic selected by the student. The qualifying paper is required in place of the general comprehensive examination. The qualifying paper will be evaluated by two faculty members who serve as the student's qualifying paper committee.
