Doctoral Seminar

Resident students are required to attend the weekly non-credit doctoral seminar in their concentration.

Led by concentration faculty, the doctoral seminar is devoted to presentation and discussion of research in the area of the concentration by Heller faculty, invited speakers, and advanced doctoral students.  Students are expected to discuss their progress in developing dissertation ideas, research questions, and research design at least once each semester.  In addition, at least two joint seminars each semester cover subjects of interest and value for all in-residence students across the concentrations.
