We welcome applications from students of any undergraduate, graduate, or work background with an interest in women’s and gender studies. To apply, please follow the Graduate Center’s general admissions process via the online application. The M.A. Program in Women’s and Gender Studies application requires the following:

1. A letter of intent, summarizing your reasons for applying and why you feel you would be a good fit for the program
2. A writing sample of 10-15 pages that significantly addresses gender
3. Two letters of recommendation from professors or supervisors who know you and your work well

*Due to COVID-19, the GRE requirement is suspended for Fall 2021 admissions.

We admit new students each Fall. For consideration in our next incoming class in Fall 2021, the priority deadline is January 15, 2021 and the final deadline has been extended May 15, 2021.

Please note: We do not currently offer any grants, fellowships, or scholarships for our MA in Women’s and Gender studies students. Information about tuition at the Graduate Center can be found here.
