We strongly encourage applications for our MS and PhD Graduate Programs from domestic and international students. Information on the application procedure, including what to include in your personal statement, is available on the Graduate Program Application and Admissions page. Please email the Graduate Studies Office if you have any questions.
Admissions into our MS and PhD programs are competitive; thus we do not offer "conditional" admission. Since these programs are full-time, financial support is necessary. Financial support from the department comes in the form of teaching or research assistantships. **Students do not have to have a MS degree to apply into our PhD programs and assistantships are preferentially offered to PhD over MS students**
We will be holding an Interview Weekend February 23-25, 2018. Top applicants will be invited for an interview and should plan on attending. During the visit, applicants will interview with selected faculty members and become acquainted with the KSU campus, facilities and students from the Program. *While we have already begun evaluating applications for Fall 2018 admission, we will continue to accept applications after the deadlines until we have filled all of our positions.
Our MA program has rolling admissions; though, applications need to be completed at least one month prior to the start of the semester in which you want to start taking classes.
The MA program is a course-based degree and is an excellent option for students interested in career advancement. This degree can be pursued either full-time or part-time.
