With a wealth of resources and expertise at hand, our program establishes a working process that teaches students to conduct advanced research and enables them to consolidate their skills through presentations, assessments, and ongoing input from teachers and colleagues.

The program has five credited components:

Coursework (12 credits)

Research Tutorial (6 credits)

Comprehensive Examination (9 credits)

Doctoral Forum (3 credits) 

Thesis (60 credits)

There is also an additional Language Proficiency Requirement.

Students follow the rules of their home university except in the case of seminars at partner institutions, when the rules of the host university apply.
