PhdD Vision Science Early Research

Students must conduct and present a research study before applying for the PhD Candidacy Exam. This requirement can be met by successfully defending a Master's thesis, submitting a Master's thesis in a vision-science-related field before entering the program, or submitting a manuscript accepted by or published in a peer-reviewed journal with the student being the first author or the corresponding author. The previous Master's thesis or peer-reviewed paper must be reviewed and approved by the VSG Committee.
