Program Requirements

Students with a Master's degree (thesis route) in Public Policy from an accredited university will be required to take a minimum of nine (9) credit hours of the core course work. Students without this background will be required to acquire the relevant background before taking the formal PhD core courses.

Students who have taken one or more of these courses previously (i.e., in a master's program) will be required to substitute an additional course or courses. Students may take additional courses in a particular subject area if they wish, subject to the approval of their advisory committee and the FGSR.

Students must write and successfully defend a thesis to complete the program. Students are expected to complete the program in a timely manner; for example, within three years as a full-time student, but a maximum of six years is allowed under FGSR's regulations.

Comprehensive Exam:

Students will complete a comprehensive examination following completion of their prescribed course work (see above). The comprehensive exam would involve the preparation of a paper and an oral exam. The paper would be linked to the research program that the student has identified and that would serve as the starting point for a thesis proposal to be completed after the comprehensive exam is successfully completed.

Following successful completion of the comprehensive exam, students would move to the development of a proposal, and upon its approval, to the thesis research and writing stage.

Academic Performance Standards:

Satisfactory performance in research and course work is required and can be reviewed at any time as defined within the framework of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research regulations. The supervisory committee can meet to address any issues pertaining to the student's progress and could recommend termination of a student's program should progress be unsatisfactory. The Dean of FGSR or the FGSR PhD Committee may also initiate questions concerning a student's progress, as per FGSR regulations.
