Program Description

What is the Dissertation Boot Camp Training Program?

The dissertation boot camp consists of synchronous (LIVE) and interactive online workshops relevant to writing a dissertation and surviving a research review process. Workshops are designed for academic doctoral candidates and students pursuing either a Ph.D. or Professional doctorate within an institution doctorate degree program.
