Title of Talk:  How to Prepare a PhD Proposal

Name: Prof. Lori Pollock


Before being a PhD candidate, students have to pass several hurdles, with the last one being the dissertation proposal, where you show that you understand the literature and lay out your plans for completing a PhD dissertation. This session will discuss the goals of the proposal, an outline of what should be in the proposal, how to strategically choose your committee, and how to prepare for your proposal defense.
