Ph.D. program applications are due January 15 of the year preceding the fall semester in which you wish to begin. Funding is available to qualified Ph.D. applicants on a competitive basis.
Master of Arts program applicants are accepted throughout the year
Admission to the Ph.D. program is based on a combination of undergraduate (and graduate, if applicable) transcripts with a minimum 3.2 GPA, GRE scores (The Graduate Records Examination (GRE) has been waived for all prospective graduate students applying to the doctoral program in the 2020-21 academic year), statement of purpose, and letters of recommendation. Admissions decisions are based on a combination of the candidates’ academic qualifications and their match with areas of faculty expertise (these areas are described on the faculty page).
Admission to the M.A. program is based on a combination of undergraduate (and graduate, if applicable) transcripts with a minimum 3.0 GPA, statement of purpose, and letters of recommendation. Students who complete the master’s program and who then wish to pursue a Ph.D. must complete a separate application to the Ph.D. program.
