This is an exciting time to begin your doctoral work at the Mandel School. Our faculty has just approved exciting changes to our curriculum that will be implemented beginning with the 2019-2020 academic year. New courses are being added in advanced research methodology and statistics as well as more opportunities for elective coursework. We have developed a new integrated research seminar that provides a link between your coursework and your doctoral dissertation. In addition to the traditional doctoral dissertation format, we now offer a three-paper dissertation option.
