GRE Requirement in the 2021-2022 Admissions Cycle Waived

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Religious Studies is waiving the GRE requirement for the 2021-2022 graduate admissions cycle.

Candidates applying for admission to the PhD program in the 2021-2022 cycle (to commence in fall 2022) may include their GRE scores if they wish, but this will not be necessary for a complete application.

The admissions portal opens on October 1. All applications must be received by December 15.
