Admission Requirements

Our application and admission process is committed to evaluating applications holistically based on a student’s ability to successfully undertake the rigors of graduate study and contribute meaningfully to our classroom conversations and academic community. 

Students who wish to apply to the Humanities program must meet the following admission requirements.

  • A baccalaureate or professional degree (or equivalent foreign credential) from a U.S. college or university.
  • Possess a minimum of a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale. If your GPA does not meet this minimum, and feel that your GPA is not an indicator of your potential to succeed in our program, we still encourage you to submit an application and provide a brief statement explaining the circumstances that affected your GPA. This statement can be included as part of the online application.
