PROCEDURES FOR ANNUAL PhD PROGRESS EVALUATION IN ENGLISH STUDIES, 2021-2022

Please note that the evaluation dates for the 2019-2020 are 02 & o3 June 2022. (For further information, see section 1, below.)

Members of the PhD Evaluation Committees (EC) will be designated by the Academic Commission of the PhD Program (CAPD) from among 20 faculty members of the English Department listed in section 2 below. The members of the EC will undertake an annual assessment of the progress each candidate has made on her/his thesis over the past academic year. This evaluation is mandatory for all students.

In accordance with the regulations of the UAB Post-Graduate School, a PhD candidate will need to receive a favorable evaluation of progress on his/her thesis in order to be eligible to enroll in the Program for the following year. Failure to undergo the annual PhD progress evaluation—without justification—implies the definitive termination of the doctoral student’s candidacy in the Program.

Please read and take careful note of the information set out in the following two sections:
