Application Information

Admission into the Program

Admission to graduate programs in the department is based upon an estimate of probable success in research and courses that lead to a specific graduate degree as indicated by transcripts, letters of recommendation, and performance on the verbal and quantitative sections of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Research interests expressed in each applicant's letter of intent are compared with those of the focal research areas in the department to determine academic compatibility, so it is important that candidates give as much information as possible relating to research goals.
