The Department also offeres a Ph.D. in Folklore.

We advise you to submit your application no later than January 15, although later submissions may be considered.

Entry to the graduate program is limited and competitive. An undergraduate record with a 75% overall average is normally the minimum requirement for consideration for entry to the M.A. program. For entry to the Ph.D. program a master's degree in Folklore, or its equivalent, is required, with an average of at least 80%.
