Prospective Students

Our program offers outstanding students the opportunity to pursue original research with our faculty as part of an exciting educational program. This is balanced with our continued goal of preparing all of our graduate students for successful careers as researchers in both academic and nonacademic settings.

Program Overview

The program only admits students during the fall semester – spring admissions will not be considered. The deadline for admission is always December 1st, nine months prior to the Fall term when students enter the program. Students become involved in research during their first semester and continue their research while they complete required and elective courses. Therefore, only those individuals able to work full-time toward the doctorate should apply.
