“USC has exceptional faculty who not only are world-class scholars but also are exceptional mentors to Ph.D. students. They genuinely care for Ph.D. students’ success. They co-author papers with them and also help them transform their dissertation into outstanding research papers. Co-authored papers often result in a publication that provides students the opportunity to learn subtle issues in the publication process and also helps them in the job market.”

“Marshall offers doctoral students many great advantages: a world-class faculty who are deeply committed to doctoral education and to their students, a strong suite of Ph.D. courses and the flexibility to adapt the curriculum to your goals, a high-quality group of student colleagues to work with, and the excitement of being part of an evolving, up-and-coming doctoral program at a world-class university located in one of the greatest cities in America. Marshall tailors its program to maximize the professional benefits to its doctoral students. RA and TA assignments are designed, first and foremost, to offer our students the best training and research experience available.”
