Additional Application Information
An applicant whose native language is not English must provide proof of English proficiency regardless of their current residency.
An applicant's potential for success is determined by the quality of writing and clarity of thought demonstrated in the letter of intent and responses to the application questions. During the application process, applicants are prompted to write short written responses to World War II-related questions. These responses serve to demonstrate to the committee a student's writing ability and potential for thoughtful participation in degree coursework.
Letters of recommendation that point to a student's ability to deliver high-quality academic work and persist to an academic goal receive priority.
An applicant's GPA and academic performance, particularly in humanities coursework, also indicate potential.
