How can I decide whether to apply for the M.S. or Ph.D. program?

You are here

Ph.D. applicants are typically students who have previous research experience from their undergraduate, graduate, or work settings, and who have determined that they wish to pursue a research-focused graduate degree. M.S. applicants often have less research experience or are not yet prepared to commit to the more extensive work involved in the Ph.D. program.
