Comprehensive examination Part 1 examines the depth and breadth of knowledge in the student's own research area. 

Comprehensive examination Part 2 will involve the submission of a research proposal that is both novel and of a sound scientific basis that may be loosely related to the thesis research of the student but not a topic that the student has investigated in any manner. The research proposal will be submitted to a committee for oral defense.

Failure to pass either part of the comprehensive examination will result in deregistration from the graduate program.
