Information for All Graduate Students
You should be notified at the time of admission if you are required to complete the breadth requirements. If you do, please talk with your advisor to draw up a plan to meet these requirements. Typically, seminars should not be used to fullfil the breadth requirements.
Consult with your thesis advisor to draw up a plan to meet the requirements for the degree. The plan can be changed over time. However, it has been shown that students with a plan tend to finish their requirements much earlier. You are encouraged to follow the normal progress timeline to insure that you complete your degree in a timely fashion.
The Geography Department adheres to the Graduate School policies concerning thesis committee requirements. These policies can be found online here.
