If you intend to pursue a degree that requires a thesis or dissertation, finding an advisor with whom to work is a key step. For best results, reach out to potential advisors prior to applying to ask if they are accepting new advisees and what funding may be available to support you prior to applying to a program. Here are some ways to identify potential advisors:
