Candidacy Exam

In departments which require it, the candidacy examination is administered by the department in the student’s field of specialization. The examination may be written, oral, or both, as determined by the sponsoring department, and it may also serve as the final examination for the master’s degree if a department so prescribes. The examination may not be taken until the student has completed at least one year of study beyond the bachelor’s degree.
