Application Requirements

Fill out the online application and submit the following documents:

  • Application fee
  • Statement of purpose
  • Sample of work
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Official transcripts (applications will be ready for review with unofficial transcripts, but official transcripts will be required if an offer of admission is made)
  • Official GRE test scores (optional)
  • Official TOEFL or IELTS score (for international applicants)

To foster close student-faculty relationships and provide for the greatest flexibility in developing each graduate student’s individual curriculum, the department strictly limits the number of students it admits each year. The department does not maintain a terminal MA program and accepts students only into the PhD program.
