HMG uses the same standards for the candidacy exam as the graduate school. Within the first semester of the third year, students must undergo an oral exam consisting of a written proposal by the student, an oral presentation, and a questioning period.
For your help, we have posted the most recent off-topic candidacy exam proposals from our students to help guide you in the process. Please feel free to contact our students with any question regarding the candidacy exam and any other questions you may have.
The graduate school’s GSA also has a website with candidacy exam help.
