All Ph.D. candidates must offer a seminar on their thesis. The seminar must be open to the public and must be announced to the animal sciences community (faculty, graduate students, staff) in advance. The seminar announcement must be in the form of an email communication. Flyers, electronic or printed and posted in animal sciences buildings, are welcome but not required. The content of the announcement must include the following information:

  • Name of student
  • Title of thesis
  • Degree (MS or PHD thesis)
  • Advisor's name
  • Room/place
  • Time
  • Short abstract (some thesis titles are too broad).

Students should send their information about the seminar announcement the MS Thesis Exam Request Form or PhD Final Exam Request Form.

Questions or comments can be communicated through the Request Graduate Help System or to Sandra Rodriguez Zas, Graduate Coordinator, or Alicia Schneider, Graduate Contact.
