What is a Ph.D. oral defense? The oral defense is the final step before graduation for Ph.D. degree candidates. The student has finished all research and is presenting a thesis that is an original contribution to the field of scholarship. A copy of the completed thesis is available prior to the defenses for those in the Luther Seminary community: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LTiKtCgAswK71mzFIHXocFfNNtyiQYhc/view?usp=sharing
The oral examination is a public event open to faculty, students, staff and guests; however, other than the candidate, only faculty members have speaking privileges.
