Minor Field Exam

The minor exam lasts 8 hours, but may be taken anywhere the student prefers. Questions and completed essays can be distributed and turned in via email. In fact students must turn in an electronic (Word or Word Perfect) version of their essays to the graduate office, where they will be saved for at least five years. Students can use any aids they want during the exam, including books, articles, electronic versions of notes, pre-written exam answers, and whatever printed documents they can find on the internet. The only thing that is not permitted is help from other people, including email messages written during the exam.
