Graduate Admissions Process

How to Apply to our Graduate Programs

The Department of Modern and Classical Studies currently recommends a minimum TOEFL iBT score of 111/120 for international students. Currently, no GRE score has been set for applicants. If you have taken this examination, please include your score in your application, and we shall take them into consideration.


The official University of Wyoming application form can be found here.


Applicants are more likely to succeed as students and instructors provided they have achieved an ACTFL proficiency rating of Advanced Low in the language of the degree program to which the applicant is applying as well as English.  Faculty in the degree program will interview prospective applicants online to determine that they possess sufficient proficiency in the language and in English to be successful in their course of study.


Applicants to our MA program should submit the following items:

  • a  letter of application indicating the reasons for their interest in their purpose and the course of study they are interested in pursuing.  An indication of future career goals is also useful. 
  • Official copies of undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, or graduate transcripts demonstrating previous coursework in the languages of the degree program to which they are applying.
  • 3 letters of recommendations from those who know well their preparation for their intended graduate course of study.
