Why are there multiple deadlines for scholarship consideration?

You can apply to our programs at any time during the year. We receive the bulk of our applications for fall admission from late autumn through early spring. After an application is received, an admissions decision will usually be made within 4-6 weeks. All admitted applications are then eligible for merit based scholarship consideration.

How long is the program and when does the Peace Corps participation take place?

Students typically start the M.A. program in September and attend two full semesters. In June or July (depending on the Peace Corps placement process), you would go into the Peace Corps. This commitment is for two years of service. Then you would return to school in September and graduate that December.
