To: PhD Students
From: Donald Norris, Professor and Director, School of Public Policy
As you know, the faculty of the School have been considering changes to the comprehensive and field qualifying exams, and a short time ago we sent all of you a brief description of those proposed changes. After further consideration, we have decided that it is too late to be able to implement the proposed changes in time for the comprehensive and field qualifying exams scheduled for this coming September.
Therefore, the exams in September 2017 will follow the existing format.
In order to answer any questions students may have about the proposed changes to the comps and fields, I will hold two open meetings:
Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at 5:30 pm (new time) in PUP 107 (Shriver Center conference room) and
Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 7:10 pm in PUP 451 (MIPAR conference room). to answer your questions and receive any feedback you have.
Please RSVP to Pam Mollen if you plan to attend (firstname.lastname@example.org).
