Required Application Documents

  • Application
  • Personal statement
    • The personal statement must succinctly describe the multi-disciplinary nature of the student’s intended educational study, the credentials supporting success of the student in a graduate program of study, and the student’s intended career path upon graduation.
  • Three letters of recommendation from professors or employers (Current Texas A&M graduate students may submit two letters of recommendation)
    • One letter must be from Texas A&M faculty who commit to advising the student's research.
    • It is preferred that the 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. Do not include letters from family friends or other non-technical referees who cannot fairly assess your academic abilities.
  • Resumé/Curriculum Vita
  • The GRE requirement has been waived through spring 2023; no decision has been made beyond that. Optional: You may self-report your general Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) test scores (subject tests not required) in the Quadrant 2 Academic History section of the application. You may also upload copies of your unofficial test score reports in the Quadrant 4 Program section under Documents in the application.

  • Official transcripts from all previously attended college institutions
  • English-language proficiency:
    • Applicants whose native language is not English are required to submit proof of English proficiency to be eligible for review. Visit for a list of acceptable documentation and/or test scores.

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.  One letter of recommendation must be from Texas A&M faculty who commit to advising the student's research (one committee chair and one committee member).
