A statement of purpose is required for all applicants. This is your opportunity to address your academic, personal, and professional goals and aspirations. It should reference relevant examples from your background and highlight your character and accomplishments.
In 750 words or less, address the factors that have encouraged you to seek an education from Penn GSE. You may also wish to address your background, significant personal and professional experiences related to your program of study, important aspects of your academic record and your professional goals upon completion of your desired program.

If you are applying to multiple programs, tailor each statement of purpose to the individual program.”
