The road to the dissertation is long and often winding. Graduate students complete courses, lab work, and exams; they develop research questions and methodology; they review existing literature. They conduct interviews, surveys, and experiments; analyze results; and consider implications.

As they make their way down this road, graduate students transform from being those who absorb knowledge to those who produce it. They raise new issues, develop new approaches, and advance new ideas.
