Prospective Students

Admission to the Graduate Program (FALL ONLY)

All students should apply directly to the Ph.D. program. The M.A. is obtained en route to the Ph.D., and the requirements for the M.A. must be successfully completed in order to obtain permission to proceed further towards the Ph.D.

Graduate programs are applied to electronically, online, by submitting the UCLA Application for Graduate Admission here.

Personal queries may be addressed to Ms. Kerry Allen, Student Affairs Officer, either by e-mail or telephone. More academic issues may be addressed to the Director of Graduate Studies.

Three letters of recommendation must be solicited to accompany a student’s graduate application, along with results of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).  This exam is administered only at fixed times of the year and should be taken months ahead of the application. International students whose first language is not English will also be required to pass the TOEFL test.

For the most complete and up-to-date information on application procedures, as well as program requirements for the M.A. and Ph.D., please consult the Grad Division website.

Deadline for all applications: December 15.
