Upon receipt of all completed applications for the upcoming intake year, the faculty review committee will evaluate and rank all applicant submissions. We are looking for diverse individuals that will make up unique and supportive cohort.  We want to make sure that you are a good fit for the program and the program is a good fit for you! 

Successful candidates will be notified by Admissions once all applications have been reviewed.  If you require further assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact the department chair.
