Admission Requirements

  • Satisfactory completion of an undergraduate degree in English is the normal prerequisite.  However, students who do not meet this norm may be admitted to the program, dependent on their background (e.g. literature and writing courses, job experience, independent study, etc.).  The Graduate Advisor based on a conference with the applicant, may determine that some additional coursework is necessary.  All students must arrange an interview with the Graduate Advisor before registering.

    • Graduate application
    •  Three professional or academic letters of recommendation
    •  A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university
    •  Final, official transcripts from all colleges/universities attended
    •  A sample critical/research paper
    •  TOEFL scores if English is not a first language.
