As part of the Ph.D. program students are required to present three Graduate Student Colloquia. The presentations are evaluated by the audience and the student will be informed of the results of those evaluations within one month of the presentation.The colloquia are given in the second, third, and fourth semesters of study. At least one colloquium must be a review of an article (not authored by the student) in a peer-reviewed journal. At least one colloquium must be a summary of the student’s research.
At each colloquium, the audience completes an evaluation form; the forms are reviewed by a faculty member who will meet with the student to review the presentation and audience comments.
