You will gradually transit from taking courses to conducting independent research. A preliminary advisor will be assigned to you upon entry, who will guide you through the initial stages of the program and help find you a final advisor. In years 1 through 3, you will take the PhD Research Seminar, where in year 1 you will learn to present academic papers, and in years 2 and 3 you will begin to present and get feedback on your own research ideas. Your advisor and other faculty will guide you through executing your own independent research, which you will start presenting to the entire Department in year 4.
