1. How long will it take me to complete the program?

If you are admitted to the program without requiring make-up courses, and you are able to go full time, you should be able to complete the program in four years. Over the history of the program, students have taken much longer, but modifications have been made so that it is possible to complete all the coursework within a calendar year and usually a project can be completed within three years, including writing of dissertation.
