Admission Requirements

Grade for Entrance Previous Year (%)*70

These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.

    Applications for study leading to the MA in English are accepted from students holding an Honours BA in English, or its equivalent. The equivalent would normally include 60 credit hours of courses in English literature, with at least 24 credit hours in periods prior to 1900. Students are strongly encouraged to take a range of courses providing coverage in the major authors and showing study at an advanced level. Applicants who lack this prerequisite will normally be directed to the Pre-MA program. Students must have a B (3.0) average in prior English studies and a B (3.0) average overall to be eligible for admission (meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance).

    Additional Admission Requirements:
    • Letter(s) of Reference
    • Portfolio
