One of the single most important aspects of getting admitted to the OEAS degree and to be successful within the program is to identify and communicate with one or more possible advisors whose research interests align with your own. It is in your best interest as an applicant to discuss with potential advisors their areas of expertise, ongoing and future research projects, expectations of graduate students, your educational and career goals, your research interests, and why you want to be a part of the OEAS program and their respective research programs. Since nearly all of our graduate students are supported financially via graduate research assistantships, graduate research assistantships, or fellowships, finding the best fit of an advisor who is accepting new students, and has possible support can take some time. It may take multiple attempts to connect with potential advisors, but if you are having problems reaching someone after a few tries please feel free to contact the Program Director (Dr. George Waldbusser) who may be able to facilitate a connection or direct you to other potential advisors. Below is a brief list of advisors whom are actively recruiting new graduate students, however, this is not exhaustive and should not discourage you from seeking out others whose interests more closely align with your own.
Other helpful tips:
Below the actively seeking students list, are all of our graduate faculty, organized by their respective discipline groups (which are organization structures of the college). The five concentrations within OEAS are managed by the three discipline groups, and many faculty advise students across different concentrations. So please start with finding the correct advisor and then discussing with them what concentration may be best suited for your goals.
