Additional Information


  • Current master's students wishing to move to a doctoral degree program in this same graduate program will not be required to submit a new application.
  • When applying, you should apply for your ultimate degree goal. A Master's is not needed to apply to the Ph.D. program UNLESS the Bachelor's degree earned was a three-year program. If that is the case, the applicant must have completed or be in the final year of a two-year MS program when applying. The MS degree must be completed before classes would begin here in August of the year for which you are applying.
