Our program uses an apprenticeship model where students learn how to conduct original research by collaborating closely with their advisor. Thus, a close match between the research interests of the student and his/her advisor is a critical factor in our admission decisions.
We typically have 30-40 students enrolled in our graduate program, meaning students receive a lot of individual attention from faculty members. About two-thirds of our graduate students are working toward an M.A. and one-third is working toward a Ph.D.
