Comprehensive Exams

All PhD students are required to take two comprehensive exams in any of the following areas.  Please be sure to consult the graduate student handbook for policies regarding the scheduling, administration, and grading of exams. 


Students may also want to refer to the required/recommended courses for each area exam- these are for reference only and you are responsible for checking if a more recent version exists.
