G&E Candidacy Exam Committee Composition

The Examining Committee composition will mostly follow GSBS rules. The committee will include a minimum of two G&E faculty members, and up to three members of the student's Advisory Committee, except that the student's advisor will be replaced by the current Chair of the Education Committee of the G&E Program, who will chair the exam committee. If the advisor happens to be the Chair of the Education Committee of the G&E Program, then the Co-Director of the G&E Graduate Program will replace them. Alternatively, the chair of the exam committee will be drawn from a pre-approved list of G&E faculty members. For the 2020-2021 academic year, the approved faculty are Dr. Myriam Fornage (chair of the Education Committee), Dr. Michael Galko and Dr. David Johnson. In case none of these faculty are available, Dr. Pierre McCrea or Dr. Jichao Chen will serve as the exam committee chair.

Students with a second area of research concentration in G&E will include a minimum of one G&E faculty member on their advisory committee.
