Admission to the graduate program requires a Bachelor’s degree (BA or BS) with substantial coursework related to the expressive cultures of Africa. Admitted students with an insufficient background in African cultural studies may be asked to complete additional coursework beyond the regular degree requirements. Applicants should have a minimum 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 grading scale or equivalent academic performance on other scales. The Department will consider special cases, however, for probationary admission.
Admission into the PhD program requires an MA in a closely related field (with the thesis or another substantive piece of graduate-level writing submitted as a writing sample).
Please note: Documents including transcripts and letters of recommendation must be in English or accompanied by an official/notarized translation, if in another language.
If you have questions regarding the admissions process and procedure, please contact the Graduate Coordinator, Toni Landis, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
