There are approximately 100 doctoral examinations each year at Concordia University. The doctoral thesis examination is the culmination of the student’s research program. It exposes the student’s work to scholarly criticism by members of the University and gives the student the opportunity to defend it. These examinations are open to the public. For a list of upcoming doctoral exams, please see our Upcoming Defences page.
