Admissions Requirements

Candidates for Master of Arts degree programs must hold a bachelor’s degree from a college or university accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education. Bachelor’s degree equivalents from recognized foreign universities are accepted. Those without degrees are welcome to participate as auditors, in a non credit-bearing track. Applicants whose native language is not English must attain a score of at least 550 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or demonstrate proficiency in their use of the English language through the essay and interview components of the application process.

Candidates for Graduate Certificate programs may apply without a bachelor's degree but will not be eligible to receive graduate credit for coursework completed. Those without degrees are welcome to participate as auditors, in a non-credit-bearing track. Individuals without Bachelor's degrees may audit a program with special permission from the Provost and the Program Coordinator. Auditors are required to submit all application materials and are expected to complete the program as if they were degree candidates.
