Apply to MACH

Prior to submitting the application, applicants are strongly encouraged to consult the Master of Arts Program in Comparative Humanities (MACH) faculty profile page so that they may fill out the section of the Graduate School application regarding faculty with whom they might be interested in working. On the basis of these preferences, each student will be assigned an initial curriculum advisor, with whom the student will consult before and after arrival on campus. By the beginning of the spring semester, each student will select an advisor for their capstone project and register with that faculty member for MACH 301b, Capstone Project.

Applicants to the Master of Arts Program in Comparative Humanities apply electronically through the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
