Contacting potential advisors

Direct communication with potential faculty mentors is a key component of the application decision process for both PSM and Thesis applicants. We strongly encourage prospective students to visit our faculty directory and read about their areas of interest and ongoing research. Once you are familiar with their areas of specialty, please email professors to set up a time to either talk on the phone or meet with them here on campus.
