Track 1 Program
- The Track 1 (Comprehensive M.S. & Ph.D.) program offers a highly-integrated, streamlined program that can be completed in a shorter time span (about 5 years).
- The program is designed from the beginning to meet the needs of the student without redundancy.
- The comprehensive program offers potential for increased efficiency with less paperwork (i.e., one admission process, one set of recommendations, one GRE, etc.).
