- No more than two-page Statement of Intent (SOI) indicating the reasons why you wish to earn a M.S. or Ph.D. degree.

You may also apply for assistantship, which is separate from the application for admission to our graduate program. Applications for assistantship are evaluated separately from applications for admission. Offers of teaching assistantships (TAs) are made by the department chair and depend upon availability of funds and merit. Research assistantships (RAs) are offered by faculty who have funded research projects. Admission to the graduate program does not mean that an assistantship will be offered by default.
Applicants should notice that all documents must be uploaded or mailed to the Graduate College.
