Hartford Seminary

Ph.D. Research Skills Preparation (PHD-699)

Exclusively required for the Transition Year students, this course provides a comprehensive survey of the academic expectations involved in a Ph.D. Students will be required to find relevant Ph.D. dissertations and offer a critique of the quality; in addition faculty will make presentations on time management, note taking, and doctoral level arguments. The course takes place over three retreat days across the academic year with significant independent work done outside the class in consultation with the student’s advisor.

If you are not enrolled in a degree program but wish to register for this course, use the Online Registration for Special Students and Auditors.
