PRELIMSAn introductory guide

Finishing up the coursework is just the first step in the PhD (or MA) degree seeking process. According to the Graduate Student Manual, there are 8 necessary steps for a successful completion of the PhD. So after you have finished (or close to finishing up) your coursework for both your primary and secondary areas, the next step to take in order to remain in the ring is to take the preliminary examination. This, however, only pertains to PhD students. M.A. requirements after the coursework can be found here.
