Admission to programs leading to the M.A. degree is determined on the basis of academic ability as evidenced by success in prior academic work and/or other measures of academic aptitude and demonstrable potential for excellence in teaching or development activities in education. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is not required for admission to the M.A. programs. The Depart-ment of Curriculum and Teaching evaluates M.A. applications three times per year. For information on application deadlines, see the Admissions section of this bulletin.
