For admission to the Master's Program or the Doctoral Program in History, the department requires:
NOTE: To due hardships associated with Covid 19, the GRE is optional for applications submitted during the Fall 2020 semester. If you wish to submit your GRE scores, the committee will gladly consider them as part of your application. However, the GRE is not required during the 2020-2021 application cycle.
Note: Successful Ph.D. applicants most commonly have an MA in history. We are open to PhD applicants with MAs in other fields as well as history-focused M.Div. programs. We do also consider applicants for the PhD who are applying directly from their undergraduate degree, but it is significantly less common for us to offer admittance to these applicants.
Submit all application materials to the Graduate School through the electronic application process (see How to Apply on the Graduate School's Admissions page). You may complete the GoBaylorGrad portion of your online application there or by accessing it below:
Applications are due December 1. Fall admittance only.
The department may modify these requirements in exceptional circumstances.
