What types of advisement are available to Wagner doctoral students?
Upon entry into the program, all new students are assigned a faculty advisor who shares common research interests and will further help the student organize a study plan. When a student completes the requisite coursework and comprehensive exams, s/he will begin work on the dissertation under the guidance of a dissertation advisor. The dissertation advisor may be, but is not necessarily, the student's faculty advisor. This advisor works in concert with the student and a dissertation committee throughout the dissertation process.
A doctoral program advisor is also available for general/policy-specific advising assistance.
