English Accelerated BA/MA (for current TCNJ Students Only)
Applications are due in the Fall of your Junior year (October 15th). Applications are due to the English Department—not the Office of Graduate Studies—through the application on the MA website (see link below).
You must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 overall and a 3.4 for English classes at TCNJ.
Application requirements include:
- A completed application
- 2 letters of recommendation from TCNJ faculty members (one must be from the English department) who can evaluate the candidate’s research and writing skills
- Unofficial transcripts from TCNJ
- A writing sample (a piece of analytical writing from a 300- or 400-level course at TCNJ–submitted without any grade or comments).
Students applying for this program do not need to take GREs, and you do not have to pay an application fee.
Applicants will be notified by October 30th with admission decisions in time for Summer registration.
National Standardized Admission Test Requirement
Applicants to the MA in English are required to take the GRE unless they meet the criteria of the waiver policy. The applicant should request that a score report be sent to The College of New Jersey (Code #R2519). The general test information of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) may be obtained from ETS at 800/GRE-CALL. Test scores may not be more than five years old.
The GRE is not required for the Gender Studies and DEIA certificate programs.
