Comprehensive Exams at the University of Oregon consist of 4, 4 hour exams over the course of 4 days. My exams were taken between Dec. 12 and 16. These are the un-edited answers from the exams (please forgive typos and strange syntax). It is posted here not so much as a writing sample, but as a guide for future students completing their degrees and exams. Please do not cite without the author’s permission (that’s me).
