We sincerely appreciate the interest of prospective graduate students. Please be aware that we typically accept students into our graduate program only when we have a fully funded graduate assistantship available for them. Faculty members select their own graduate students; we have no departmental selection process as long as students meet the minimum qualifications set by the Graduate School. Our best advice is for prospective graduate students to individually contact the faculty members in our department whose research efforts seem to match up with student interests, and ask each of them about future openings for which to be considered. You can find the faculty members and their specialties on our people page.

For graduate admissions, please apply through the Graduate School. Thank you again for your interest!
