The PhD in Computational Sciences is a full-time program, typically completed over three years, during which students will complete the Technical and Communication Research Methodology course and any additional courses assigned by their Advisory Committee. Students will also give two public seminars, pass a qualifying exam, conduct research and successfully defend a written dissertation at the final oral examination. We also offer the option to complete the PhD with a collaborative specialization in One Health.
