PhD Intensive: Daily Schedule

Daily Schedule

During most mornings, the faculty will present information related to the requirements consistent with the Walden University dissertation, doctoral study, or project study rubric. During the remainder of the day, students spend time writing and meeting with faculty members to get personalized assistance with their writing.

At the end of the day, students “check in” with the faculty members on progress made, barriers and facilitators to effective and efficient writing, and goals for the next day. Many students take full advantage of their time away from home, work, and families by continuing to write during the evening.

See your dissertation intensive retreat registration confirmation email for detailed arrival and departure information as well as a typical daily schedule.

Participants must be present until the conclusion of the intensive retreat program in order to earn a “Satisfactory” grade for the retreat.
