Trial Research Project

All students are required to enroll in the Trial Research Seminar in the Winter Quarter of the first year and the Autumn Quarter of the second year. The trial research project must be completed and formally approved by the faculty during the Spring Quarter of the student’s second year. Students are expected to report regularly on the progress of their research to the trial research seminars. The trial research is carried out under the direction of the research advisor and is read by one other faculty member. This project meets all the requirements of a Master of Arts degree, and with the proper paperwork, a successful Trial Research Project may be applied toward a MA in the course of your PhD program.
