Application Deadlines:

Feb. 15 for priority consideration.

Applications are accepted after that date if spaces remain available, as the program has rolling admissions. Applicants for winter and spring quarters should submit an application at least two months prior to the start of that quarter. The admissions committee considers applications in February and March for the subsequent fall quarter and meets once during fall and winter quarters to consider midyear applications.

Admission to the M.A. program is competitive, and a limited number of spaces are available. The admissions committee will rarely consider incomplete files.

Prerequisite Courses/Degrees:

Applicants for whom English is a second language but have received a degree at an institution where English is the language of instruction and examination are not required — but are strongly encouraged — to submit TOEFL and TWE scores along with their GRE scores. Submission of these scores will strengthen the application.
