Admission Requirements

Admission to the Master of Arts program requires a 3.00 GPA in Spanish. Non-native speakers must have completed 24 hours of undergraduate Spanish, beyond the basic language requirement (for example, WSU classes SPAN 111, SPAN 122, SPAN 210): 8 of these 24 hours should be at the junior-senior level (300 and above). Native speakers must have completed 12 hours of Spanish at the junior-senior level or demonstrate equivalent background knowledge. Students with background in other fields (non-Spanish majors) should demonstrate knowledge of the language and of a set of basic analytical tools within the humanities. 

Students who have been previously accepted through the Dual Accelerated program will become full time students in the Master´s program after meeting all the admission requirements at the time their bachelor´s degree is awarded (they will get out of the “tentative” status).


MCLL follows the Graduate School admission deadlines, but you could apply later if needed. Please check the graduate school’s website for further information on application deadlines


Applications for graduate study are made through the Wichita State University Graduate School. All records required for admission should reach the Graduate School no later than the aforementioned deadlines for the desired term of admission. Materials received after these dates will be processed as the time of staff and faculty permits.

All applicants to the Wichita State University Graduate School must pay a nonrefundable application fee for each application submitted. The fee is:

- Domestic Application $60 (for U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents)
- International Application $75 (for students who require a visa status)
- The international application fee will increase to $135 after the secondary deadline and $175 for late admission.
