In most cases candidates for admission should have completed18 hours of undergraduate course work in English or a related discipline, with a GPA of at least 3.0. In addition, candidates must present evidence of an acceptable score on the Graduate Record Examination General Test (native speakers of a language other than English must submit TOEFL scores), transcripts of all undergraduate course work, three letters of recommendation, a brief personal statement (250-500 words), and a writing sample (preferably from an undergraduate research paper).
It should be noted that the stated admissions requirements are construed as guidelines; the admissions committee fully recognizes that some candidates may present either credentials or prior experiences that lay beyond the parameters described here.
