The official version of the PhD Handbook is the web version available online. The Handbook contains materials useful for doctoral candidates in the Laurier-Waterloo PhD. As much as possible, the requirements and policies in this book reflect the most up-to-date requirements and policies in each institution (Laurier and Waterloo). In instances where the Handbook differs from those, the official requirements and policies of the student’s institution will take precedence. Please report suggestions and errors to the joint program director.
