Admissions and Selection Process
The University's Office of Graduate Admissions ascertains that the University's general requirements have been met. The Division of Spanish and Portuguese Studies judges the more specialized requisites and will insist that applicants hold at least a bachelor's degree or its equivalent, with a major (or equivalent study) in Spanish. A grade-point average of no less than 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) for the combined junior and senior years of undergraduate work, as well as for any post-graduate study already accomplished, is highly desirable. No minimum GRE (Graduate Record Examination) score is required from applicants who are required to take this test. However, the Division finds an average score of 500 and above encouraging. Admission to the Division of Spanish and Portuguese Studies is competitive.
Questions may be addressed to email@example.com.
Notifications regarding the awarding of Teaching Assistantships, which are the Division's appointments, are issued in the spring by the Chair of the Division of Spanish and Portuguese Studies.
