PhD Dissertation Writing and Defense
The PhD Dissertation consists of a piece of original research written by the doctoral candidate and represents the core of the Research Plan.
It is possible to present the dissertation as a compendium of articles written by the student and published in prestigious journals. The minimum number of articles is three. The Dissertation must include, in addition to the articles, a detailed summary lending coherence to the research represented in the articles, including the central thesis, as well as a chapter of conclusions.
The Program’s Academic Committee is charged with approving the presentation of the Dissertation and completing this form to propose a panel to be named by the Official Postgraduate Studies Committee.
