We strongly recommend that you have an MS degree in IP&T or related field prior to applying for the PhD program. If you currently do not have an MS degree, we encourage you to first apply for the MS program and then apply for the PhD towards the end of your MS degree. Those with MS degrees in IP&T are much more competitive for advanced study. Starting as an MS student will not slow down your progress because all the core coursework required for the MS is also required for the PhD. Up to 36 credits (of the total 39) can be applied from our MS program to the PhD requirements. (We can also accept up to 36 credits from a comparable graduate program under the discretion of the department chair.)
