Graduate Study in Arts and Sciences
Completion of a program in a given discipline with a strong grade point average will generally satisfy the requirements for graduate study in that subject. Departments will give specific guidance in such matters. Ability to communicate in written and spoken English is particularly important. A reading knowledge of one or more foreign languages is often required for advanced degrees. Statistics and computer/information science are also increasingly important to the scholar in many areas. Advanced degrees include the master of arts (M.A.), the master of science (M.S.), the master of fine arts (M.F.A.), and the doctorate (Ph.D.)
