Dissertation Outside Reader

The fourth member of the Dissertation Committee must be from outside the Rutgers Art History Department, either from another department at the university or from a department, art history or other, at another institution. The outside reader is usually added to the committee while the dissertation is in progress. Outside readers must be chosen in consultation with the dissertation adviser and approved by the Graduate School. The dissertation supervisor, rather than the student, will contact the outside reader and request his or her participation in the committee.
