UW Geography is a PhD-oriented program, so we usually admit students as MA with six years of funding (2+4 years for MA+PhD) or as post-MA students (4 years of funding for PhD). If you are planning to apply to the Geography MA/PhD and I might be a potential committee member, you should write me an email, usually from September to December (UW is on the quarter system, so I am less likely to catch your email from June-August). I recommend writing a short email, maybe 2-3 paragraphs, that explains: a possible research project you'd like to work on, why you are qualified to do so, and what research/theoretical perspectives we might share (you don't need to read my articles and cite them in your email). If you start your email subject line with "Prospective student: ...", it will help me keep track of your message. Thank you!
