The relationship between our doctoral program and master's program
The doctoral and master's programs are separate, both in admissions and
in coursework. In terms of admissions, applicants must specify which to
program to direct their application. Students who are not offered admission
to the doctoral program may request that their application be considered
for the master's program, with no extra application fee. Students enrolled
in the doctoral program do not earn a "master's-along-the-way."
With the exception of a few courses, coursework for students in the doctoral
program is separate from that of the master's program.
