Choosing a Ph.D. program that matches your skills and interests is critical to your academic, professional, and personal success. The Georgia Tech Scheller Ph.D. program is designed to develop scholars who are capable of making original contributions to their chosen fields.
At Scheller, you'll find a collaborative approach that encourages work across academic areas and across the Institute. This allows you to tackle the newest trends and biggest challenges in research.
The Ph.D. program is strongly research-oriented and emphasizes early and effective involvement in research. Students experience considerable personal attention as well as close interaction with faculty. The program also places significant weight on learning outside the classroom. Given the size of the program, the tutorial model is the primary educational approach employed throughout the program.
The Ph.D. program is limited to full-time students who will complete their entire doctoral program before leaving the campus. Ph.D. applications are actively encouraged only in areas where faculty resources and research activities are sufficient to serve doctoral students adequately.
