Each candidate will have his or her own “Comprehensive Examination Committee,” unless two or more candidates are working in the same field. In consultation with the student’s supervisor, the Graduate Committee will appoint the members to the Comprehensive Examination Committees. This will occur in February of year one. This examination committee will consist of three faculty members: the candidate’s supervisor and two other faculty members working in the candidate’s field or related fields. This committee will not necessarily be the same as the Dissertation Supervisory Committee, which is formed later in year two of the program.
