    • It is preferred that remaining letters come from faculty who have been involved with the student’s most advanced levels of academic education and who can assess the student’s potential for advanced scholarly studies .

  • Resumé/Curriculum Vita

Due to the nature of interdisciplinary study, it is necessary that all applicants first engage Texas A&M faculty in the disciplines of interest to establish the intended multi-disciplinary program of study and research focus.  Two letters of recommendation must be from Texas A&M faculty who commit to advising the student's research (one committee chair and one committee member).
