Supplemental Information:

Students accepted into our graduate program are financially supported by either a graduate research assistantship (RA) or a teaching assistantship (TA). Applicants do not need to have identified a faculty member in our program as their research mentor. Most students choose the mentor for their graduate research during the course of their first year in the graduate program. Decisions on student admission are usually made by March 1st with decision letters being mailed afterwards.
