Admissions & Financial Support
Admissions to the MA Degree Program are noncompetitive.
Applications are due by February 15 for both the hybrid residential and hybrid online tracks. Courses for the Hybrid Online Track begin in late May. Courses for the Hybrid Residential Track begin in mid June.
Prospective degree-seeking students must submit the following along with their application:
- a statement of intent
- a resume
- 3 letters of recommendation
- unofficial transcripts from each post-secondary institution
- optional - GRE scores up to five years old
We also welcome applications from students who prefer a departmental, non-degree seeking status. These students may take courses with the intent of becoming degree-seeking or who simply would like to take courses for personal enrichment. Up to 12 credits taken as a non-degree student can be transferred for a student wishing to become degree seeking. (grade restrictions apply)
