Applications for this program are processed by both the Joint Ph.D. Program in English and Education and the University of Michigan’s Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies (Rackham). Note that there are separate and required steps applicants need to make through both the Program and Rackham.
Applicants need to have both a Bachelor’s degree demonstrating broad preparation in English or in areas appropriate to the degree program and a Master of Arts degree in English or Education. It is also necessary to have teaching and/or informal experiences, in or out of school settings in order to be considered for the Joint Program in English and Education. To learn more, review frequently asked questions about the Joint Program in English and Education.
These are the steps to apply:
It is imperative that students interested in admission to programs in the School of Education meet all deadlines for submitting applications and relevant materials. All materials must be received in our office by December 30. Please make this deadline clear to all recommenders. You should receive an electronic confirmation of your submitted application. Applicants will be informed of admission decisions by mid-March for fall enrollment.
If you have questions about the program, visit the Rackham Graduate School website, review the School of Education frequently asked questions, or send an email message to the coordinator of the program, Jeanie Mahoney Laubenthal. (Please note: the program is closed over the holiday break, December 23 – January 1.)
Note: We match documents to an application using the name appearing on the Rackham application. If the name on your documents, i.e., transcript, letter of recommendation, portfolio, etc., is different from the name appearing on your application, please be sure to indicate all former last names or other first names on question 3 of the Rackham application. Contact us if you have information about your name that you did not include on the Rackham application.
Note for international students: The University of Michigan requires certain entering international students to be screened for tuberculosis (TB). This requirement is in response to recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Michigan Advisory Committee for Elimination of Tuberculosis to screen individuals from countries where TB is common. Screening will be offered free on campus and a TB infection would not jeopardize a student’s visa status. Health care is completely confidential.
