Motivation, curiosity, and scholarly achievement

As an intellectual, research-driven community, GSAS actively seeks scholars with a wide variety of backgrounds, ideas, and interests in our student body.

Though specific requirements may vary by department, applicants must possess a minimum of a bachelor's degree (or equivalent foreign credentials) and demonstrate motivation, intellectual curiosity, and promise of great scholarly achievement.

In the admissions process, we consider carefully an applicant's academic record of achievement, recommendations, and research goals. Also important is the demonstrated ability to deal successfully with the rigors of a GSAS program and to contribute to a vibrant intellectual community.

GSAS's Application Resource Center is available to provide information and guidance on the admissions process.
