Admissions

Degrees Offered

Although the Department offers both an MA and a Ph.D., the department does not admit students to a terminal MA program. Students enrolled in the PhD program earn an MA degree along the way.

  • The general goal of the MA program is: “the student achieves the levels of understanding, skill, and interest needed to become a lifelong user of systematic knowledge in their academic field."
  • The general goal of the PhD program is: “the student achieves the levels of understanding, skill, and interest needed to become a lifelong contributor to the systematic knowledge in their academic field.”
