For students to be considered for admission to the PhD in Science Education graduate program option, they must:
Applicants need to contact a member of the Science Education PhD Program faculty, either in person or via telephone, to discuss career and research goals. This assists us in assigning a graduate advisor upon admission.
Upon receipt of all materials, the Associate Dean will forward the application packet to the Office Associate for Curriculum and Instruction, who will then forward them to the Science Education Program faculty for review. Following the application review (approximately 2 weeks), the program faculty will make a recommendation regarding admission for Graduate Study at UW. Applicants will be notified of the decision by email. Applications will be considered at any time, but students who apply by January 15 will receive full consideration for graduate assistantships for the following academic year.
Applicants are evaluated on alignment of research interests with those of existing faculty, clarity of application letter and goals, prior teaching or work experience, letters of recommendation, transcripts (including GPA) and previous research experience with an accompanying sample of professional writing if available, according to the Science Education PhD Admissions Rubric.
