Contact prospective advisor(s)

It is highly recommended that prospective applicants contact present faculty members in order to obtain more information (e.g., to inquire whether that faculty member is seeking new students). In some cases, faculty members have indicated whether they wish to admit students on their individual webpages on this website; this information may not be current.


Financial Aid

Financial support includes teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and fellowships. All assistantships include a stipend, full tuition waiver and medical/dental  health benefits.
