Doctoral Admissions

Dissertation Guidelines


UT Tyler offers an online Ph.D. in Nursing. This online nursing program prepares nurse leaders for careers in education and research and includes emphases in health priorities that have applicability nationally and internationally. The nursing PhD program is an entirely online program.

We also offer a Ph.D. in Human Resource Development. This program is designed to prepare researchers and practitioner leaders for a rapidly changing and culturally diverse global workforce. The HRD PhD requires just 5 on-site classes per semester, which are primarily held on weekends. Students complete the balance of course requirements online.

Become a Pharmacist: Earn Your PharmD: Beginning in fall 2015, UT Tyler anticipates offering the doctor of pharmacy degree to a small number of exceptional students. Learn in a team-based environment taught by some of the most innovative and caring faculty in the world. Experience the excitement of working with nurses, physicians and pharmacists to provide pharmacy care to patients of all ages and engage in the rapidly expanding healthcare field in East Texas. The PharmD program admission criteria differs from the Nursing PhD and HRD PhD, so please visit The Ben and Maytee Fisch College of Pharmacy home page for more information.

 

Doctoral Admissions

APPLY NOW

Applicants for admission to a PhD program at UT Tyler must hold a baccalaureate and a master's degree from a regionally accredited institution, complete an application for the program, and submit official GRE/GMAT scores and official transcripts showing proof of baccalaureate and a master's. UT Tyler transcripts need not be forwarded by the applicant.

In addition to program admission requirements, consideration for admission is also given to one or more of the following: the applicant’s demonstrated commitment to his or her chosen field of study, socioeconomic background, multilingual proficiency, geographic region of residence, first generation of family to graduate from an undergraduate program, and involvement and level of responsibility in other matters including extracurricular activities, employment, community service, or family responsibility of raising children.

Because some programs accept only a limited number of students or do not have the faculty or facilities to accommodate a student's particular area of study, some applicants who exceed minimum requirements may not be accepted.
