PhD – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Make sure to also review the Graduate Application FAQ which covers questions that apply to both PhD and master’s applicants.

You are encouraged to contact faculty prior to applying for admission. However, please make sure that you take the time to familiarize yourself with their latest research. Generic emails to faculty are generally ignored.

To help find faculty members/ research that are a good match for your interests, check out the Research and People links on the academic department webpages, and the Faculty Research Topic Database.
