Prospective Students

Students are admitted to the program based on their intellectual match with faculty interests. Prospective students are strongly advised to contact faculty working in their area of interest. read some of their publications. When you contact them, explain your research interests and provide an overview of your education and training. Ask them if they are accepting students, and what projects they are planning. They can advise you on how your experience fits with our program, and can suggest ways you can strengthen your application. We have many applicants, and it will greatly help you if faculty know you before admissions decisions are made. Our faculty enjoy hearing from potential students, and generally will not vote to admit a student they haven’t had any contact with.
