    Applicants to the MA program are expected to have an English Honours BA with first- or high second-class honours. The current average GPA required for admission to the MA program is 3.5. Students applying from a program without an Honours option, or whose degree is in another field, may apply if they have a strong academic record; however, such students, if accepted, may be required to do a qualifying year before beginning the MA program.
