Dissertation Made Easy –21– Getting To Candidacy

When you get started with your coursework it’s tough to know where to go and how to start. Where as in undergrad courses are often offered a few times per year, by the time you get to doctorate level it’s definitely not like that. You will find that many course that you need are offered only once per year. To avoid finding yourself waiting a year to take your last course or two, you need to know these. Your advisor is the best person to help you figure this out, but if they are unable or unwilling to help you do this seek out the program coordinator. Before the end of your first year of classes you should develop a course plan that details not only the courses that you will take but also which semester you will take them in. When you develop your plan, be sure that it is in accordance with when each course is being offered. If a course has prerequisites, be sure to account for that in your plan. The benefits of this plan will include avoiding having to wait for courses, as well as allowing you to register as early as registration is open to prevent being capped out. If you’ve read my book you know that while you are doing all this work on your courses, you also should be doing some things in preparation for your dissertation too. If you haven’t read it yet- What are you waiting for? Get it now.
