Experimental Track Description

In the Experimental Program, students wishing to pursue a Ph.D. are admitted into a Master’s program and either complete the Master’s degree, or are allowed to fast-track to a Ph.D. after undergoing a formal evaluation and admission process.

Student research is conducted in collaboration with the research supervisor, with input from the student's supervisory committee and other faculty members. At the end of the each year, standing in the program is determined by research progress and by evaluations in the required courses.
