Admission Requirements

Applicants to the Ph.D. program in English must have either an undergraduate major in English or a related field or intensive study in the liberal arts with a solid background in literature in English, normally with a GPA of at least 3.500 (out of a 4.000 scale). They must also submit scores for the GRE general graduate school admission test. In addition, a statement of purpose for graduate study and three letters of recommendation are required, along with a writing sample in which an argument on a literary topic is sustained for about 15 pages. Proficiency in a second language is strongly recommended prior to matriculation in the program.
