Liberal Arts admission requirements

Undergraduate

No special admission requirements.

Graduate

The GRE isn't required, but you'll need to submit:

  • An official transcript confirming your completion of a bachelor's degree at a regionally accredited college or university, or the foreign equivalent. Bachelor's degrees from non-regionally accredited institutions will be accepted if the school was accredited by an accrediting body listed in the U.S. Department of Education's Database of Accredited Postsecondary Institutions and Programs at the time you attended.
  • An essay that demonstrates your understanding of the program and how you will personally benefit from it. Review MA in Liberal Studies essay guidelines.
