Before starting a dissertation, each student writes a dissertation prospectus, which is then defended before, and approved by, the entire dissertation committee. Ideally, the dissertation committee should include at least one professor from the Department of History and one professor from the Department of Classical Studies. Students should expect to complete their dissertations by the end of their fifth year of graduate study and their second year of candidacy.
