5 Admissions Criteria

Program Admission Requirements. Admission to the Ph.D. program is limited, and therefore, competitive. Meeting recommended criteria does not ensure admission. Admission to the doctoral degree program occurs once per year in the Fall Semester. The following factors for admission into the doctoral program will be considered by the ILT Doctoral Program Committee:

  1. A 36-hour master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction, in a related educational field, such as early childhood and elementary education, special education, curriculum, instructional technology, literacy education, or adult learning and teaching, or in an academic discipline, such as history, mathematics, the sciences, humanities, or fine arts. Students with fewer than 36 hours credit may be considered for the program with probationary status pending the completion of deficient hours;
  2. A master’s degree transcript documenting a grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or higher;
  3. For applicants whose native language is not English, a score of at least 550 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL);
  4. Three letters of recommendation from faculty, supervisors or professional affiliations attesting to the student’s academic and professional attributes for success in the program and potential for contributing substantially to a field of study related to the degree;
  5. A written personal statement/essay describing research interests and purpose for pursuing the Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching;
  6. Graduate Record Examination (GRE) test scores not older than five years;
  7. A professional vitae demonstrating experience in a work environment where education was the primary professional emphasis;
  8. Agreement to participate in an interview, if so invited.
