We encourage you to explore the profiles of our PhD Students and Candidates, information about admission requirements, faculty and student research, courses, and funding supports.  Read more about the program in the PhD Program Handbook.  Visit our YouTube channel @UMSSW_phd

As a next step, feel free to reach out for additional information or to ask specific questions. You can contact me at: Prospective students are encouraged to reach out with questions about the application process or to arrange a virtual visit.
