Doctoral RS2

All doctoral students must meet the requirement for Research Skills and Responsible Scholarship (RS2) before proceeding to comprehensive exams. The requirement includes at least two components:

  • Every doctoral student is required to have training in responsible scholarship pertinent to the field(s) of research.
  • Every doctoral student is required to obtain research skills pertinent to the doctoral level of research in their field(s).

All doctoral programs have a Research Skills and Responsible Scholarship plan approved by the school/College and the Office of Graduate Studies.  Each department's plan provides details on how the requirement is to be fulfilled by students within that department.  It is the responsibility of the department to ensure that the requirement is completed in accordance with the approved plan.  COGA checks for this department verification when pre-approving the Comprehensive Oral Exam.
