Field Descriptions

The documents linked below provide incoming master's and doctoral-level students with guidance in planning the subjects they will take during their graduate program. The suggestions outlined here are to be understood as guidance and not as a mandatory, rigid framework. The final decision as to which subjects are taken, and in what sequence, is to be decided between each student and the student's academic advisor and/or doctoral committee. In addition to these recommendations, the official SM and doctoral degree completion requirements must be taken into account during the design of an individual's program of study.
