Most programs have additional requirements* beyond the Grad School application. Review Part 2: Apply to Program for admissions information specific to the PhD in Science Education.

*For example, you may need to schedule an interview and/or submit additional documents such as writing samples, a CV or resume, or a statement of purpose. Some programs require an official transcript, not just the unofficial transcript as required by the University.

Part 2: Apply to Program

For the PhD in Science Education

Admission to the doctoral program in science education normally requires a minimum of three years of teaching experience. A previous graduate degree in science education or in a scientific field is common but not required. A GRE score report is required for admission to the Science Education Program, which should be submitted directly to the Graduate School.

In addition to the Graduate School application, please submit the following directly via email to the graduate coordinator:

  1. Statement of research interests
  2. Academic writing sample
  3. An interview (in person or via distance technology) with the program's doctoral admissions committee

Applicants are also strongly encouraged to communicate with members of the faculty who share their areas of research interest but may not currently be a member of the admissions committee.
