The Qualifying Examination (CAMP 2-4), provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate their skills in analysis and synthesis of information, self-evaluation and reflective thinking, self-direction in their own learning, professional identity, commitment to growth, creativity, ownership of their own work, and understanding of strengths and areas in need of development. Successful completion of the Qualifying Exam signals the official acceptance of the student into doctoral candidacy, provided that they have completed all other program requirements, including successful completion of coursework and practicum experiences, up to that point in the Program.  Failure of the Qualifying Exam has implications for M.A. degree conferral - students must successfully complete the CAMP 2-4 in order to graduate with their M.A degree.
