        Educational Leadership (Joint EdD) (ED81)

        The University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and California State University, San Marcos (CSUSM) offers a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Educational Leadership. This cohort-based three-year (including summers) doctor of education degree is designed to enable education leaders to participate in a research-based program while working in an educational setting.

        We seek educators who wish to expand their knowledge of discipline-specific pedagogy, research methodology, and education reform in order to lead curricular and pedagogical improvement efforts with pre-service, beginning, and experienced teachers in local schools. Our students represent groups of great depth in diversity and professional experience. Students include primary, secondary and post-secondary educational practitioners. We address a broad range of educational issues specifically concentrating on:

        Teaching and Learning
        K-12 Leadership/Administration
        Higher Education Administration & Student Affairs

        The Joint Doctorate in Educational Leadership has three foci. First, we are committed to a program of study that addresses issues of social justice in all aspects of education. Second, we teach and use a strengths and asset-based inquiry approach that enables you to embrace your own strengths and to identify and build on the strengths of others as stepping stones to powerful leadership. Third, we engage you in exploring cutting edge research and practices that will enable you to design and lead educational systems in and for the future.

        Education (Ph.D.) (ED82)

        The Ph.D. in Education is designed for students with some professional experience in teaching and learning settings as well as in research. Our mission is to teach students to wield the tools of research to change disparities in educational experiences and student outcomes.

        As part of the evolution of education research, the field of education will require Ph.D. graduates who are prepared to collaborate with policymakers, educators, families, and communities to transform current education policy and practice. The UCSD Department of Education Studies Ph.D. will provide a fresh approach to training such new researchers. Rather than train traditional faculty members to solely generate knowledge documenting outcomes and processes in education, we will cultivate future faculty and researchers to serve and partner with communities through their research in order to affect educational change in regional, national, and international settings.

        With a focus on equity, equality, and justice, the program will train students to engage in research that can address problematic educational settings, practices, and policies. The program will explicitly articulate the links between university faculty, students, education practitioners, community members, policy-makers, and educational stakeholders. In addition to gaining a core foundational knowledge in theory, methods, and research in education, students in the Ph.D. program will have the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary experiences working across UCSD divisions, departments, and research units.

            Writing (LT84)

            The MFA program is a 2-3 year residency program foregrounding the interconnectedness of literary arts practice, modes of production and distribution, and the rigorous study of literatures, arts, and cultures. All graduate writing workshops are cross-genre and often interdisciplinary, investigating and often undermining a studio-versus-academic distinction in advanced literary education. Moreover, the program encourages interdisciplinary research and holistic approaches to teaching and learning. Quarterly cross-genre workshops discuss writing-in-progress and published works in terms of poetics, prosody, and literary conventions alongside the interrelationship between aesthetic intervention/ experiment and radical social change across cultures, nations, regions, and movements. Both faculty and graduate projects tend to repurpose, interweave, hack, and muddle generic categories and/or radically elasticize their conventions.

            Area of Study Division of Arts and Humanities
            Program Overview The MFA in Writing is a full residency, cross-genre program. It's designed to be completed in two years but students have the option of doing a third year. All students, domestic and international, are eligible for full funding. Most funding packages are based on teaching apprenticeships.

            The program admits 4-8 new students each year. Workshop enrollment is 12-15. All graduate writing workshops are offered in English, but program participants may work with Literature and extra-departmental faculty on bilingual or multilingual projects, including works in translation.

            The MFA is a terminal degree. Courses used for the MFA cannot also be used for a PhD.
            Specializations

            Cross-Genre/Hybrid with Emphasis in Fiction or Poetry
            (Note: The MFA in Writing plans to seek approval from UCSD's Graduate Council to change the program specialization to "Cross-Genre" effective Fall 2019. Students will no longer be asked to select an emphasis in fiction or poetry. Visit our website for additional information.)

                    Philosophy (PL75)

                    Since its founding in 1963, the UCSD Philosophy Department has grown to become a nationally ranked department, offering excellent instruction and supervision at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Faculty have a broad range of research interests, with special concentrations in the philosophy of science, ethics and political philosophy, history of philosophy, and epistemology and metaphysics.
                    The department is strongly committed to interdisciplinary work in philosophy, which graduate students can pursue through joint doctoral studies in the Science Studies Program and in the Department of Cognitive Science. The department has close ties to many other departments and programs on campus including History, Classical Studies, Psychology, Political Science, and the Division of Biological Sciences. Graduates of our Ph.D. program have been successfully placed in top departments across the country and abroad.

                    Science Studies
                    The Science Studies Program at UCSD is committed to interdisciplinary investigations. Understanding, interpreting, and explaining the scientific enterprise demand a systematic integration of the perspectives developed within the history, sociology, and philosophy of science. The program offers students an opportunity to work towards such integration, while receiving a thorough training at the professional level in one of the component disciplines.

                    Students enrolled in the program choose one of the component disciplines for their major field of specialist studies, and are required to complete minor field requirements in the others. The core of the program, however, is a year-long seminar in Science Studies, led by faculty from all participating departments.


                    Cognitive Science
                    The interdisciplinary program in Cognitive Science has eight participating departments: Anthropology, Communication, Computer Science and Engineering, Linguistics, Neurosciences, Philosophy, Psychology, and Sociology. Students enroll in one of these departments as their "home department" and also enroll in the Interdisciplinary Program. The degree lists both the home department and Cognitive Science: for example, if the home department is Philosophy, the degree title is "Ph.d. in Philosophy and Cognitive Science." Some additional coursework is required. Please view the web page at http://www.cogsci.ucsd.edu/graduate-study/idp

                    Public Health -- Epidemiology (PU75)

                    University of California, San Diego (UCSD), in collaboration with San Diego State University (SDSU), offers doctoral degrees in 3 Public Health areas: Epidemiology, Global Health, and Health Behavior.

                    Epidemiology is an essential scientific discipline in public health, which deals with the causes of and prevention of factors associated with disease. Our understanding of the etiology of many infectious and chronic diseases is based on data from epidemiologic studies.

                    If you are you interested in researching the causes of disease, why some populations are healthier that others, and investigating methods to promote health, this program offers the training. The program applies the principles of population‐based research. Methodology for investigating the etiology of infectious and chronic diseases. Use of epidemiologic methods for the prevention and control of disease in human populations. A wide range of research opportunities with a multidisciplinary faculty from two campuses.

                    Emphasis is on producing graduates with a mastery of the central concepts and analytic processes of epidemiology and biostatistics. Required and elective courses include epidemiologic methods, study design, occupational and environmental health, exposure assessment, clinical epidemiology, women's health, cancer prevention, research dissemination and scientific ethics. The PhD in Epidemiology trains individuals for careers in research and teaching in a variety of settings, including academic and research institutions, government agencies, and the private sector.

                    Applications to both institutions are required for admission. Please make sure to submit your applications in your area of choice to UC San Diego, San Diego State University and the national application system, SOPHAS.

                      The body and mind of the actor are synthesized to serve as an instrument of expression. The actor must depend on his or her instrument to perform, and the program places great emphasis on the strengthening and tuning of that instrument. The innate talent of the student is nurtured, coaxed and challenged with individual attention from an extraordinary team of professionals and specialists in actor training.
                      All graduate students serve at least one professional residency with the La Jolla Playhouse and are cast in positions ranging from supporting to lead roles alongside professional actors and directors of national and international stature.

                      In 1985, we established a unique professional relationship with the La Jolla Playhouse and that relationship grows and gets stronger each year. The La Jolla Playhouse (Tony Outstanding Regional Theatre, 1993) is in residence at UCSD for extended seasons each year (May through December) in our shared facilities, the Mandell Weiss Center for the Performing Arts. They produce some of the most vital and nervy theatre in this country and they share our vision of what theatre training ought to be. MFA students in Acting, Dance Theatre, Design, Directing, and Stage Management get at least one professional residency with the La Jolla Playhouse.

                      Theatre and Dance (Playwriting) (TH80)

                      The American theatre needs bold, committed, and compassionate playwrights who are connected to the world they live in. Each year we admit one or two such individuals who will be nurtured by the close individual attention and extensive production opportunities that are unique to this program. We believe that the theatre itself is a valuable teacher of playwrights and so playwrights work collaboratively with their colleagues in the MFA acting, directing, design, and stage management programs to create stimulating and meaningful works of art. The year-long development process includes a series of readings and a workshop week culminating in the Wagner New Play Festival, produced each April. The Festival provides a dynamic opportunity for all its featured plays to receive greater local and national attention as it attracts professional guests from theatre's across the country.

                      Theatre and Dance (Stage Management) (TH81)

                      Stage managers are the orchestral conductors of the theatrical process. The stage manager takes the words and compositions of others and interprets them, using a unique approach. Stage managers artfully integrate the needs of a production as well as the personalities of all collaborators. Traditionally, the work of a stage manager is on a continuum through all five phases of production: pre-production, rehearsals, technical rehearsals, previews, and performance. As the only collaborator involved in all of these phases, the stage manager supplies the artistic continuity of the production, creatively orchestrating the unfolding of the process.

                      The stage management curriculum at UC San Diego wholeheartedly embraces the practical and the theoretical, acknowledging that the most fertile ground for learning is where they intersect. We teach stage managers how to set intentions and goals, which allow the cultivation of a supportive space for creative collaboration. Stage Management students approach each production with a keen collaborative sensibility, aided by a strong knowledge of directing, design, acting, and all production areas. Students are encouraged to be curious about their collaborators, and to view themselves as artistic partners.

                      Theatre and Dance (Dance Theatre) (TH82)

                      The purpose of the MFA in Dance Theatre is to nurture the unique vision of the next generation of dance theatre artists. Students will create original works that foster cross-fertilization between choreography and other artistic disciplines. The focus of the program will encourage the development of concepts and processes, which expand the language and aesthetics of dance theatre.

                      The core principles of the Dance Theatre MFA are rooted in the aesthetics and methodologies of both American post modern dance and European dance theatre, whilst embracing the current surge of global cross fertilization and hybrid forms of dance, theatre, live art and new media practice. A select group of mature and emerging dance artists are invited to hone their skills, creative process and artistic voice within cross-disciplinary training, with a strong emphasis on collaboration between artists from different media and cultures. Our program seeks to redefine boundaries and stretch the choreographic and theatrical imagination into new spaces, whilst preparing students with the skills and strategies to continue into a broad range of professional contexts.

                      International students whose native language is not English will be required to demonstrate English language proficiency before they may serve as teaching assistants.

                      International graduate students who are nonnative speakers of English must be certified as having requisite language skills before they can serve as teaching assistants (TAs; UC San Diego Graduate Division policy in compliance with Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 41).

                      Evidence of English Language Proficiency: Certification as Teaching Assistant Recommended Scores

                      Students may be certified either on the basis of their score on one of the following:

                      • have a TOEFL iBT Speaking subscore of 30
                      • have an IELTS Speaking subscore of 9.0
                      • have a PTE Speaking sub-score of 90,
                      • be an international graduate student who serves as a language assistant in courses conducted in their native language.

                      Those students with TOEFL speaking scores of 23 – 27, IELTS speaking scores of 7-8, or PTE speaking scores of 65-82 are required to take the English Language Certification Exam.

                      Students who do not pass the English Language Certification Exam are given the opportunity to improve their language skills.

                      Those students who are admitted but have a speaking TOEFL score below 23 will not be allowed to take the certification test. Students who fall into this category may acquire the required English language proficiency skills via courses offered in the English Language Institute and the English for Academic and Professional Development Program.
                      Letters of Recommendation

                      Minimum of 3 recommendations required.

                      Letters of recommendation should come from individuals, preferably previous professors, who can best explain why you are prepared and would be successful in rigorous academic studies at the graduate level.

                      Statement of Purpose

                      Required

                      Online Statement of Purpose Only. 750-1000 word limit, not to exceed 3 pages.

                      Additional Requirements

                      Visual Arts Portfolio Requirements


                      All applicants applying to the MFA in Visual Arts program must complete both the standard application via Grad Apply AND the Visual Arts Portfolio via SlideRoom. There is a non-refundable portfolio review fee of $5.00 (in addition to the university’s standard application fee) which you pay online via SlideRoom when you submit your materials. Applicants must submit the SlideRoom ID in the Grad Apply application. The portfolio consists of an Artist Statement and samples of your artwork.

                      See the following link to view instructions https://visarts-ucsd.slideroom.com/.

                      The Artist Statement should aim to explain, justify, extend, and/or contextualize your body of work, while placing your work in relationship to art history, theory, and the contemporary world. The Artist statement will be read by the admissions committee and your peers in the program, while the Statement of Purpose is reviewed by the admissions committee only. For this reason, applicants may upload their Statement of Purpose in the Artist Statement portion of the portfolio, given it addresses the prompt.

                      The samples of your artwork should best showcase your research abilities and current/recent projects. You may create your Visual Arts Portfolio in a number of different formats. Our program is cross-disciplinary and it is not unusual for an applicant to have several different artistic mediums within their portfolio. The admissions committee is interested in seeing your most accomplished, recent work, rather than a chronology of work done over the span of your career. A good gauge would be to include work you've done within the last two years.

                      The Visual Arts Portfolio in SlideRoom must be completed prior to finalizing your application in Grad Apply. We strongly suggest that you begin building your portfolio when you begin the application. Applicants must provide the SlideRoom ID in the section titled: "Visual Arts Department - Portfolio Submission Information" in their Grad Apply application.

                      U.S. Citizens and permanent residents may request a fee waiver before submitting the application. An Application Fee Waiver request may be submitted upon completion of all components of the application, including the Visual Arts Portfolio. For more information on how to request a fee waiver, please see the link below.

                      Offering a distinct alternative to existing Ph.D. programs in art history, the program centers on a unique curriculum that places art objects and practices at the center of inquiry, even as it encourages examination of the larger historical, cultural, social, intellectual, and theoretical frameworks within which the category "art" has been contextualized in the most recent developments in the discipline. The program encompasses the study of both past and present art across a broad range that includes fine arts and media (film, video, photography, new media).

                        Art History, Art Practice (VA77)

                        The Art History program features a new concentration in Art Practice designed for artists engaged in advanced research who wish to pursue their work in an environment geared to doctoral study, and to produce studio work alongside a written dissertation. The addition of an Art Practice concentration was a natural outgrowth of the reciprocal relationship between history, theory and practice in the Visual Arts department. Rather than segregating art practice and history, UC San Diego's Visual Arts department brings practitioners, theorists and historians together to encourage innovative work at the boundaries of disciplines, discourses, and methodologies. Art practice students fulfill the same requirements as students working in other Ph.D. concentrations, including language exams, qualifying exams and the submission of a dissertation prospectus. Their dissertations, however, combine a shorter written component with a completed art project (film or video, exhibition, public work, etc.). The program is particularly well-suited for established artists with a research-based practice who are seeking the opportunity to reflect on that practice, and to develop new work in conjunction with a community of ambitious artists, historians and theorists. It is strongly recommended that applicants be at least three years removed from the completion of their masters degree program.

                        English Language Requirement for International Teaching Assistants (TA).
                        International students whose native language is not English will be required to demonstrate English language proficiency before they may serve as teaching assistants.

                        International graduate students who are nonnative speakers of English must be certified as having requisite language skills before they can serve as teaching assistants (TAs; UC San Diego Graduate Division policy in compliance with Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 41).

                        Evidence of English Language Proficiency: Certification as Teaching Assistant Recommended Scores

                        Students may be certified either on the basis of their score on one of the following:

                        • have a TOEFL iBT Speaking subscore of 30
                        • have an IELTS Speaking subscore of 9.0
                        • have a PTE Speaking sub-score of 90,
                        • be an international graduate student who serves as a language assistant in courses conducted in their native language.

                        Those students with TOEFL speaking scores of 23 – 27, IELTS speaking scores of 7-8, or PTE speaking scores of 65-82 are required to take the English Language Certification Exam.

                        Students who do not pass the English Language Certification Exam are given the opportunity to improve their language skills.

                        Those students who are admitted but have a speaking TOEFL score below 23 will not be allowed to take the certification test. Students who fall into this category may acquire the required English language proficiency skills via courses offered in the English Language Institute and the English for Academic and Professional Development Program.
                        Letters of Recommendation

                        Minimum of 3 recommendations required.

                        Letters of recommendation should come from individuals, preferably previous professors, who can best explain why you are prepared and would be successful in rigorous academic studies at the graduate level.

                        Statement of Purpose

                        Required

                        Online Statement of Purpose Only. 750-1000 word limit, not to exceed 3 pages.

                        Additional Requirements

                        Visual Arts Portfolio Requirements


                        All applicants applying to the PhD in Art History, Theory and Criticism program, Art Practice Concentration, must complete both the standard application via Grad Apply AND submit an Artist Statement, a Writing Sample, and samples of their art in the Visual Arts Portfolio via SlideRoom. There is a non-refundable portfolio review fee of $5.00 (in addition to the university’s standard application fee) which you pay online via SlideRoom when you submit your materials. Applicants must submit the link to their SlideRoom ID in the Grad Apply application.

                        See the following link to view instructions - https://visarts-ucsd.slideroom.com/

                        The Artist Statement should aim to explain, justify, extend, and/or contextualize your body of work, while placing your work in relationship to art history, theory, and the contemporary world. The Artist statement will be read by the admissions committee and your peers in the program, while the Statement of Purpose is reviewed by the admissions committee only. For this reason, applicants may upload their Statement of Purpose in the Artist Statement portion of the portfolio, given it addresses the prompt.

                        The writing sample may be a senior honors thesis, M.A. thesis, or other research or critical paper, preferably in art or media history.

                        The samples of your artwork should best showcase your research abilities and current/recent projects. You may create your Visual Arts Portfolio in a number of different formats. Our program is cross-disciplinary and it is not unusual for an applicant to have several different artistic mediums within their portfolio. The admissions committee is interested in seeing your most accomplished, recent work, rather than a chronology of work done over the span of your career. A good gauge would be to include work you've done within the last two years.

                        The Visual Arts Portfolio in SlideRoom must be completed prior to finalizing your application in Grad Apply. We strongly suggest that you begin building your portfolio when you begin the application. Applicants must provide the SlideRoom ID in the section titled: "Visual Arts Department - Portfolio Submission Information" in their Grad Apply application.

                        U.S. Citizens and permanent residents may request a fee waiver before submitting the application. An Application Fee Waiver request may be submitted upon completion of all components of the application, including the Visual Arts Portfolio.

                        Structural Engineering with Specialization in Health Monitoring and Non-Destructive Evaluation (SE81)

                        The master of science in structural engineering with specialization in structural health monitoring and non-destructive evaluation (SHM&NDE) provides highly interdisciplinary knowledge incorporating three broad technology areas: (1) sensing technology, (2) data interrogation, and (3) modeling and analysis. The intersections and integration of these technology areas are fundamental to supporting structural health monitoring and nondestructive evaluation, which may be defined as the process of making an uncertainty-quantified assessment, based on appropriate analyses of in-situ measured data, about the current ability of a structural component or system to perform its intended design function(s) successfully. This discipline within structural, civil, mechanical, and aerospace engineering is a fundamental capability that supports “design-to-retirement” life cycle management of systems.

                        Geotechnical Engineering (SE82)

                        The Master of Science is a unique degree program focused on geomechanics fundamentals and applied soil-structure interaction analyses crucial for future geotechnical engineering advancements. The goal of this M.S. program is to provide students planning to pursue a career in geotechnical engineering practice with the necessary training beyond that obtained in a B.S. degree to analyze, simulate, and design geotechnical-related infrastructure. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is encouraging new engineers pursuing a career in civil engineering disciplines to have a minimum of a M.S. degree to practice. This is particularly relevant in
                        geotechnical engineering due to the particularly complex behavior of soils, rocks, and soil-structure interaction. Similar to structural engineers, geotechnical engineers have their own licensure process to reflect their specialization.
