CCC PhD Curriculum Chart

CCC PhD students will be encouraged to work with faculty to develop their graduate educational plan that includes courses from across the campus and beyond. Some students will wish to seek academic appoints in traditional programs (e.g., Social Work, Sociology) or non-traditional ones. Finally, students will also be encouraged to select dissertation topics that offer the potential for a cross-disciplinary approach.
