Individuals already in possession of a research doctoral degree may apply to pursue post-doctoral study at Southwestern. Students must receive acceptance through both the Office of Admissions and the Doctor of Philosophy Office of the school in which they would like to study. Applicants must articulate a clearly defined area of research and they must interview with the professor selected to supervise the post-doctoral work. Admission may be secured for one year of study at a time.
All classes taken as a post-doctoral student are transcripted and graded. Courses available include reading seminars, research seminars, and independent research courses. All post-doctoral students will pay the standard doctor of philosophy tuition each semester.
