PhD Research Proposal Examination



    The PhD Research Proposal Examination (RPE) is an oral exam following submission of a short research proposal that evaluates the student’s ability to focus attention on a careful description of the proposed research problem and its background and context. It is expected that the student demonstrates a breadth of knowledge and is able to apply this knowledge to the research problem he/she will study. The student must pass the RPE before being allowed to progress further in the PhD program. Full-time PhD students typically take the PhD RPE at the end of their 4th semester of active registration. If the RPE is not passed in the first attempt, it must be retaken in the next semester
