You are here: Home / Graduate / Prospective Students / Writing Sample

The writing sample may take the form of a recent article publication, a chapter from a thesis, a term paper, or similar representative scholarship.  The sample should be approximately ten to twenty pages in length. The submitted work must be single-authored by the applicant, and, if possible, should relate to the student’s intended field of graduate study (i.e., linguistics or literature). If you have submitted a Statement of Purpose composed in English, then the writing sample should be in Spanish.

*Please note: at least one of the two written portions of your application (the Statement of Purpose and the Writing Sample) must be in Spanish.
