How do I choose my advisor for the PhD Program?
An advisor will be assigned to the student upon entering the program, but students are free to select a different advisor for subsequent advising and registration as their interests become more focused. The PhD student should seek a faculty program advisor who is knowledgeable in the student’s major area of study. The advisor must be a member of the graduate faculty.
Will I get to participate in research projects?
Both Master’s students and PhD candidates can—and do—participate in research projects. The faculty has numerous projects underway, including several that have received federal funding.
