Additional Information


  • Early application is encouraged. Program capacity is limited and it is recommended that students apply early to maximize opportunity for program consideration.
  • You should make contact with appropriate faculty members well in advance of submitting an application. This enables you to better understand the emphasis of our programs, expectations of particular faculty, whether a faculty member is taking on new students, and what you would be spending your time doing if admitted. This also enables you to specify your preferred faculty advisor(s) and write an appropriately targeted personal statement in your application. Applications that are not tailored in this way are generally not successful. Please click here for a listing of the graduate faculty advisors in each of our Research Areas.
