Applicants to the Master of Arts in Spanish must meet the following requirements for admission:
- Application for Admission
- Application fee: $50 (non-refundable)
- Official copies of your undergraduate and/or graduate transcripts from any college(s) or universities you have attended.
- Bachelor’s degree in Spanish from an accredited college or the equivalent academic training. Non-majors with an advanced knowledge of Hispanic language and culture will be considered. Admission to the program also requires at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average in undergraduate Spanish courses. The undergraduate major must include a minimum of 24 semester hours above intermediate Spanish (i.e., above the fourth semester of college language). A deficiency of up to six semester hours will not preclude admission as a limited matriculant, provided the prospective candidate compensates for his or her deficiency by taking, with departmental advisement, six semester hours of non-credit undergraduate advanced courses. Completion of 12 credits with an average of 3.0 will permit a limited matriculant to be considered for full matriculant status. An applicant with a degree from an institution outside the United States will be evaluated based on his or her background and grades.
- Two professional and/or academic letters of recommendation that address the applicant’s potential in the profession and ability to complete a graduate program
- Personal Statement that addresses the reason you are interested in pursuing graduate work in this area of study
- Students for whom English is a second language must submit official score results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The required minimum acceptable TOEFL score is: 79 Internet-based (213 computer based or 550 paper-based) or minimum IELTS score: 6.5.
