There are two distinct paths to apply for admission to our undergraduate or graduate programs within the Department of English at Ball State.

If you are interested in our undergraduate programs, you will first apply for admission to Ball State through the Office of Admissions. You will then have the opportunity to add departmental majors or minors once you have been accepted.

If you are a candidate for one of our 10 graduate programs, you will begin the application process in either the Graduate School or the Rinker Center for International Programs (for international applicants). Any remaining application materials will be sent directly to the English Programs Office to be reviewed by the appropriate admissions committee.
