To fulfill the speaking requirement for the Ph.D. degree the student must:
- Attend and present in the COS PhD Practicum, at least four times.
- Present at, at least once, at national or international conference (in a paper, not a poster session or round table).
- Achieve a high level of competency in talk organization, slide development, presentation style, eye contact, and question answering skills.
Approval is typically determined during the student Black Friday semi-annual review.
