What scores do you require for admission? Is there a "cut-off" point?
There is no "cut-off" point for GRE scores. Generally we expect the verbal and writing scores to be in the 80th - 99th percentile range. We do not look at the quantitative score.
What if my major field was not English?
We do accept applications from students who were not English majors; however, we expect them to have either six courses (not credits) beyond freshman writing or several English graduate courses, from any school.
If I apply to the Ph.D. program, can I also apply to the M.A. program?
All applications rejected by the Ph.D. program from applicants without an M.A. in English are automatically forwarded to the M.A. program admissions committee.
