  • earned GPAs of 3.00 or higher (on a 4.00 scale) for upper-division undergraduate course work (if more than 60 hours of upper-division hours were completed, 3.00 or higher on last 60 hours) OR completed master's degrees from accredited institutions
  • have strong recommendations from individuals in professional positions who can validly comment on applicants' suitability for graduate studies in general and in the intended field in particular
  • have scores on the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections of the GRE General Test at least the 35th percentile.

The Department tries to assure that the degree program to which application is made is appropriate for the academic and professional goals of each applicant.

The Department accepts only a limited number of students each academic year. Therefore, some applicants who exceed minimum requirements for admission may not be accepted.
