Path to the PhD


Achieving the PhD in chemistry is about a lot more than checking boxes. However, at Emory, we’re committed to illuminating the “hidden curriculum” – the unspoken expectations and requirements that can create unnecessary roadblocks to student success. That's why we give every incoming student a copy of "The PhD Checklist." Because it doesn’t hurt to provide a checklist. What matters is the way in which you make each step your own.
