The English Education M.A.E. and Ph.D. programs adhere to the University of Florida’s Graduate School’s minimum requirements for admission. Both programs require a 3.0 GPA in upper-division undergraduate work. The Ph.D. program requires GRE scores that are acceptable to the program. Prospective Ph.D. students should take the verbal, quantitative and writing sections of the GRE. Whereas the English Education faculty look for strong GRE scores, we look holistically at an applicant’s admissions materials.
English Education faculty also consider the written statement of purpose, the academic potential evident in three letters of recommendations, a student’s academic background (i.e., a B.A. or M.A. in English or a substantial background in literature, writing and communication), and a resume. Admission decisions are based on multiple sources of numerical and qualitative data and are framed by the goals of the program. In rare cases, faculty may offer a conditional admit to students who do not meet all of the above criteria.
