Application Process and Admission Requirements

To apply students need to email the following information to Ami Nacu-Schmidt:

  • A statement of interest
  • Academic transcripts
  • A letter of support from a faculty member in their home department

Acceptance will be based on the qualifications of the student, as well as the importance of fostering a diversity of disciplinary representation within the program. Responsibility for accepting students into the Program will be delegated to a committee of the Faculty Affiliates.

Students applying to the Certificate as part of their application to the University should include a statement of interest to the department to which they are applying and upon acceptance to the home department, the admissions committee should forward to the Certificate program manager a list of those students that they would like to have considered for acceptance. The Certificate admissions committee will consider all departmental requests at once and seek diversity in participation.

Students will be notified of their acceptance into the program within 30 days of applying.
