The comprehensive examination committee will consist of members selected by the student in conjunction with the advisor and the planning committee. The committee will be made up of at least three members from the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders and one from an academic unit outside the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders.

F. Comprehensive Examination

The comprehensive examination will consist of a written and oral examination. The written examination will typically entail 24 hours of writing within a 10-day period, though up to 6 hours may be completed in an alternative manner (e.g., practical laboratory examination or scholarly paper). The purpose of the comprehensive examination is to determine adequate knowledge of the field (AUD or SLP), research tools, the collateral area, and mastery of the area of special focus. Examiners will consider the student’s ability to synthesize, integrate, and critique information and ideas. Although there will usually be a relationship between doctoral coursework and the comprehensive examination, the examination is not restricted to course content. The oral examination date shall be within three weeks of the conclusion of the written examination regardless of the student's performance on the written examination. The oral examination is a supplement to the written examination and is intended to ensure that the goals of the comprehensive examination have been met. All of the faculty committee members from within the School and at least one from outside the School must be present at the oral examination.

The comprehensive examination may be taken upon completion of the PhD student's academic plan or within the last semester of completing his or her academic requirements. This examination will be administered any time within the specified semester subject to the discretion of the comprehensive committee. The committee shall determine the student’s status relative to the comprehensive examination after the oral examination. No more than one dissenting vote may be cast for a student to pass. The committee has the authority to specify further stipulations aimed at remedying any deficiencies reflected in the student's comprehensive examination including retaking the entire written and oral examination, enrolling for additional coursework, and preparing one or more scholarly papers. The committee chair shall file in the dean's office a decision in writing concerning the student's comprehensive examination within two weeks after the oral examination.

G. Candidacy

After completion of all academic requirements and successful completion of the comprehensive examination, a PhD student may apply for candidacy.

H. Dissertation Committee

The dissertation committee will consist of a minimum of four faculty members selected by the student in consultation with the dissertation advisor. At least half of the members must be from the School and at least one member must be from a department outside the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders. The chairperson of the dissertation committee must be from the School and must be a full member of the graduate faculty.

I. Dissertation

The student will develop a prospectus in conjunction with the dissertation committee chairman. The prospectus will be reviewed for approval by the committee. After approval the student will conduct the work set forth in the prospectus. NOTE: Students should familiarize themselves with the Thesis/Dissertation Preparation Guide before starting to write. The completed dissertation will be defended by the student. The oral defense will be open to the University community, with voting on the acceptability of the defense restricted to dissertation committee members. All members of the committee must be present at the dissertation defense. An affirmative decision will be based on the unanimous decision of the examining committee. After successful defense, any required revision, retyping, and resubmission of the dissertation to the committee chair must be completed prior to the awarding of the degree.

J. Completion of both Research (PhD) and Professional (MA or AuD) Programs

Students applying to the PhD program may also wish to meet the academic and practicum requirements for a professional degree in either Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology. PhD applicants may request consideration of a combined degree plan in consultation with prospective mentors. PhD admission requirements must be met as stated in Section V.A. above. Combined degree plans require approval by the PhD admissions committee as well as the clinical admissions committee. For MA-PhD students, all degree requirements for both programs remain in effect as specified in Sections II and V above, and for AuD-PhD students, all degree requirements for both programs remain in effect as specified in Sections IV and V above.
