Declaration of Dissertation Director

Students in the Department of Philosophy Doctoral Program must select a faculty member from the Department of Philosophy to serve as Dissertation Director of their Doctoral Committee by the middle of their fifth semester (typically the fall of their third year in the program).

The student will consult with the Dissertation Director to select the remaining Doctoral Committee members and complete the Doctoral Committee Appointment Signature Form (available from the Graduate Studies Program Assistant) by the end of their fifth semester.

Please submit the completed form to the Graduate Studies Program Assistant in 234 Sparks Building.
