Admissions

All applications for this program should be submitted directly to the Yale Graduate School Office of Admissions through the online application page.  January 2nd  is the deadline for all applicants who will enroll in the fall. Official admission decisions will be communicated to the applicants between February-March. Deadline for applicants to respond will be April 15th.

All applicants are required to submit official results of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test, which is administered in the United States and abroad by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). This examination should be taken no later than the November testing date. The GRE Subject Test is encouraged.

Additionally, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required of all international applicants whose native language is not English. This requirement is waived for applicants who will have received a baccalaureate degree (or foreign equivalent) prior to matriculation at Yale from a college or university where English is the primary language of instruction.  Students who do not demonstrate sufficient proficiency in English may be retested and/or asked to take courses in English. Proficiency in English is required in order for the students to serve as teaching fellows and fulfill the teaching requirement.

Official score reports must be submitted for all required examinations. The Educational Testing Service should be asked to report to the Yale Graduate School.
