The Doctor of Phluxus Degree (Ph.D)

Admission to the Ph.D. program requires completion of the Master's degree from Fluxus Institute or similar degree from other institutions, with sufficiently high grades and proven research ability. The student will submit an application package including a research proposal, letters of reference, transcripts, and  samples of the student's work. The prospective Ph.D student is expected to complete a comprehensive qualifying examination, a process that often commences in the second year of our graduate program. Generally, successful completion of the qualifying exam permits continuance into the Doctoral program. Formats for this examination include oral examination by the student's faculty committee (or a separate qualifying committee), or written tests designed to demonstrate the student's knowledge in a specialized area.
