Professional Presentation/Defense


Upon completing the doctoral project/dissertation-in-practice and with the committee’s approval, the doctoral candidate will present or defend. The professional presentation or defense is a formal presentation to explain the findings and contributions. The committee will then ask questions related to the candidate’s work, the implications of their findings, and their future. Upon completion of a successful professional presentation/defense, a doctoral candidate becomes a doctor.
