In particular, you may want to review the Graduate Bulletin which contains all university policies as well as program policies and course listings.
Applications must include:
- a completed application form
- a statement of what the applicant hopes to learn and accomplish in graduate school
- three (3) letters of recommendation

Applicants from non-English speaking countries must also report scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
HINT: One of the key ingredients to acceptance in our program is a match between your interests and what we have to offer. In the application, you will be asked to write a personal statement. This should be relatively short and should specifically address your research interests, the faculty member or members you wish to work with, and why you would want to work with them.
To have the best consideration for acceptance and support, please apply before January 15. Applications will continue to be considered after these dates as space remains available.
