MA in Geography

M.A. and Ph.D. applicants are all required to name potential advisor(s) in their statement. All applicants are strongly encouraged to contact potential faculty advisors prior to submitting their application. Prospective students who establish these connections typically have much stronger applications.
SPEAK & TOEFL
All prospective students whose native language is not English are required to take and submit TOEFL scores with their applications. Teaching assistants or associates, whose native language is not English, are also required to take and pass the SPEAK Test before they can assume teaching positions.
