Graduate Students

Professor Heather Urry will be reviewing applications from prospective graduate students applying to matriculate in Fall 2018. Prospective graduate students may apply either through the Experimental Psychology Ph.D. program or through the Cognitive Science Ph.D. program.

If you decide to apply and are specifically interested in working with Professor Urry, please be sure to identify her in your application as a potential faculty supervisor. Please also explain in your personal statement the ways in which your skills, interests, and aspirations in the field of affective science dovetail with Professor Urry's program of research. Applicants whose skills, interests, and aspirations aren't in affective science and don't dovetail with Professor Urry's program of research are advised to consider a different faculty supervisor.

After reviewing all of the applications from prospective students who have expressed an interest in joining her lab, Professor Urry will initiate a conversation with a small subset of applicants who represent the best potential fit. So long as you identify her as a potential faculty supervisor, there is otherwise no need to contact her to express your interest in joining her lab.

Good luck with the application process! It is both grueling and exciting but well worth it to find the right graduate program home.
