Dissertation Defense

The last step in obtaining the degree is to pass the Final Oral Examination where the candidate formally defends the dissertation.

  • Students should also pay close attention to the relevant sections of the Graduate Catalog in this matter.
  • Any research conducted involving human participants must have prior approval by the University Institutional Review Board.
  • Post an announcement of oral defense on the UConn Events Calendar at least two full weeks prior to the date of the defense.
