The Master's and Non-Degree Programs in English Literature

Applying to the Master’s and Non-Degree programs

Applications for Fall 2020 matriculation are being accepted now

There are two application deadlines this year:

All applications that have been completed by any one of these deadlines will be reviewed at that time, and will receive a decision as soon afterwards as possible.  We aim for an 8 week turnaround.

Applications for the Master's degree are considered for Fall admission only.  The recipients of admissions offers have, on average, GRE Verbal scores of 166, Quantitative of 151, and Analytical of 5.0. An undergraduate GPA over 3.5 is highly desirable.


All supplemental application materials must be submitted through The Graduate School's application system. Please do not send, or have sent, paper copies of any documents. If you or your recommenders are having difficulty submitting any component of the application online, and the application system's online help is unable to resolve your problem, please contact the Graduate Program Assistant.  Never have any application materials sent directly to The Graduate School or their Office of Admission.

In all cases, our department's specifics regarding supplemental application materials superseded those listed on The Graduate School's website, as well as any listed in the application itself.
