GRE (General) is optional but strongly recommended for students seeking funding.
Villanova’s graduate programs in the liberal arts and sciences use a holistic application review process, seeking to take into account each applicant’s individual qualifications and varied circumstances, and understanding that no single set of standards can fit every applicant equally well. Therefore, applicants to GRE-optional programs may choose not to take the GRE or to submit GRE scores, but are welcome to submit those scores if they feel they enhance their applications.
3 recommendation letters (academic references are strongly preferred)
Statement of goals - a 500-750 word statement that outlines the applicant's topics of interest in political science, pertinent experience, prior research, and objectives in seeking the degree
