It is assumed that candidates for the M.A. will have an undergraduate program of a minimum of 24 hours in French above the 204 level. Candidates who lack comprehensive prior academic training in the discipline may be admitted provisionally (contact the Director of Graduate Studies for French for details). A “B” average (3.0 GPA on a four-point scale) or higher is normal for admission to our graduate programs.
Candidates must submit satisfactory scores on the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). A minimum computer-based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of 213 on the computerized test (550 on the paper test) or a minimum overall International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 6.5 is required unless the applicant is a citizen of a country, or graduate of a university, where English is the official language. Nonresident aliens must also provide certification of financial support [link to International Programs].
