Applicants must demonstrate a B.A. with minimum 3.0 average in a humanities discipline or allied field, or other preparation commensurate with that accomplishment. They must demonstrate a level of English language proficiency adequate for success in graduate level coursework in English. While we evaluate applications holistically, we will generally prefer a GRE verbal score above 180 (86th percentile). The IHGG GRE requirements and TOEFL requirements follow the Graduate Division guidelines as detailed in the Graduate Advisor’s Handbook. Among qualified applicants, we will identify those who demonstrate a commitment to the interdisciplinary humanities approach and the World at Home/At Home in the World theme. We will seek to admit each class of students as a coherent cohort of individuals with complementary interests, who can peer-educate and reinforce the interdisciplinary character of the program. We will then evaluate whether we have appropriate faculty to support the proposed programs of study of the qualified students.
