The Admissions Process

Graduate Studies

Admissions Criteria

Undergraduate degree from a recognized academic institution with a GPA of 76 and higher.

Most departments require an undergraduate GPA that is higher than 76. In addition, the chair of any department can hold entrance exams.

As a rule, students are accepted to graduate degree programs that are in the same field as their undergraduate degree (major or minor). If the advanced degree is in a field that the applicant studied as a minor during his or her BA, prerequisite courses are usually required.

Final acceptance decisions and terms of admission are determined by the School of Graduate Studies.

Doctoral Studies

Applicants to doctoral programs can apply for one of three tracks:

Regular Track: The applicant has completed an MA and written a research thesis.

Direct Doctorate Track: Intended for high-achieving BA holders capable of undertaking an extended research project at the end of their undergraduate studies and completing it within a four-year period.
