This will require students to become involved in a number of community and local institutions, such as schools and other educational institutions. Graduate students will use this experience to not only add to their research, but to give back to the community. The program and the college are dedicated to training graduate students who are dedicated to their services and to their studies. Students may choose individual areas of expertise. Students then work closely with faculty advisors to complete their PhD dissertations. At the end of the program, students present and defend their dissertations before an academic panel.
