Master of Science Teaching Program : Application Procedures

Application Deadlines Oct 1 for January admission; Jan 15 for Fall admission

Prospective students should apply through the Physics and Astronomy Department, and applications can be submitted online.

The GRE exam is required for admission (the Advanced Physics test is not required). Three letters of recommendation are required (be sure that your letter-writer includes a paragraph and doesn't simply fill out the numerical scores). Be sure to specify the M.S.T. program (deadlines and requirements may be different from the normal research-based graduate program), and specify which content focus you desire (e.g. middle school science, High school Astronomy or Earth and Space Science, informal education, IPC, etc.). Preference is given to teachers who have previously taken one or more courses or workshops at Rice University.

E-mail inquiries about the Physics and Astronomy graduate program at Rice should be directed to the Physics and Astronomy Department's Graduate Admissions Coordinator. Telephone: (713) 348-6348.
