WES Admissions | Master of Advanced Study Degree UC San Diego

How to Apply

We are currently doing a pre-admissions process to determine the level of student interest in this program for Fall 2019. All information about the program is available here on the website including curriculum, tentative calendar, and tuition costs. After the faculty review the applicants who have applied through this pre-admissions process, they will determine if we will begin to accept official applications through the UCSD graduate application system.

You will need a copy of your resume, college transcripts (unofficial are acceptable), and a one-page personal statement about the reasons for your interest in the program in order to complete the pre-admissions process.
