Who We're Looking For

Summary

For the PhD program, we recommend an undergraduate degree in English in addition to an MA in English.  However, you may still apply if you have taken extensive coursework in English, even if your major is in a related field (such as history of linguistics).  You should also have strong letters from faculty who have taught you in English courses, and your writing sample must be an essay that relates to the field of English or American literature, literary theory, or composition and rhetoric.

 

Applicants with a BA in English may be accepted directly into the MA-PhD track.  If you do not have an MA in English, we encourage you to apply for either our MA or our MA-PhD track.
