Characteristics of Doctoral Programs

The Characteristics of Doctoral Programs were developed by the Coordinating Board's Graduate Education Advisory Committee (GEAC) to provide a snapshot of doctoral programs offered by Texas public universities and health-related institutions. We encourage you to read these characteristics and also to communicate with departmental leadership to get a complete picture of each program. Visit THECB  to learn more about the objectives for the Characteristics.
