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 (approximately 1000 words).
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.

We admit new students each Fall. For consideration in our Fall 2022 incoming class, the priority deadline is January 15, 2022 and the final deadline April 15, 2022.

Please note: The Graduate Center, CUNY, offers limited funding for MA in Women’s and Gender Studies students. We have compiled a list of grant, fellowship, and scholarship resources for masters students here. Information about tuition at The Graduate Center can be found here.
