Graduate Admissions

Applications are invited from students in a variety of disciplines, especially in the fine arts, humanities, and social sciences. The department welcomes inquiries from all regions of the world as well as the United States, and encourages applications from minorities and under-represented groups in the USA.

The complete application process and requirements are on the website for the Graduate School at Binghamton University.

Applications which include a request for a teaching assistantship should be filed electronically on or before February 15. If you are not applying for an assistantship, your application must be submitted at least two months before the start of your first semester of courses. However, early submissions are recommended, since timely reviews of applications cannot be promised for late arrivals.

Application requirements:

GRE scores

TOEFL scores (for international applicants)

Current CV

Three letters of recommendation

Statement describing your research experience and interests, the faculty members with whom you wish to work at Binghamton, and your reasons for selecting Binghamton for graduate study.

Writing sample, no more than 30 pages or 8500 words, uploaded along with the online application.
