Ph.D. Thesis Committee and Annual Meetings
In the third year, the student in consultation with their advisor will form their Ph.D. thesis committee. This committee will comprise at least four faculty members and will generally consist of the original candidacy committee plus an additional member of the faculty; at least three of the members must be from the chemistry option. The student must meet with their committee annually, beginning in the third year.
At these informal meetings, the student will update the committee on the status of their research.
