Degree program admission is based on the following criteria:
Enrollment of Non-Degree Students in M.A. in Humanities courses
Non-degree students may enroll in any course for which they have the necessary prerequisites with the approval of the Director of the Program. A student must be formally admitted to the Program prior to enrolling in the fourth course in order for the prior coursework to count towards the degree.
Provisional status allows a student to enroll in graduate classes in order to qualify for admission to the degree program. A student may be granted provisional status by the Program Director after a plan of action is developed which will assist the student to meet the entrance requirements of the program.
If a student is granted provisional status, the student must first satisfactorily complete the educational plan approved by the program director with a GPA of 3.0 or higher before being officially admitted to the program.
At the discretion of the Program Director, no more than two courses may be transferred into the M.A. in Humanities program. For a course to transfer, the grade in the course must be 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale and the subject area, goals, and outcomes must be similar to that of courses designed for the M.A. in Humanities program. Students may be required to present supporting materials (such as a syllabus, assignments, etc.) beyond an official transcript when transferring in a class.
