We welcome applications from students who hold a baccalaureate degree (or higher) from a college or university regarded as standard by a regional or general accrediting agency, and have at least a B average (3.0 GPA) in undergraduate coursework. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not required. If desired, you may upload a publication and/or writing sample.
