Masters and doctoral applicants should apply using the forms available at the Faculty of Graduate Studies website  Please note that in addition to the materials required by the Dalhousie Faculty of Graduate Studies, the Department of Classics requests an additional letter of reference (for a total of three), a writing sample (e.g. a term paper or thesis chapter of about 20 pages) a personal statement and a list of Greek and Latin texts which the applicant has read in the original language.  In the personal statement you should present yourself as an applicant, explaining your motivation for pursuing graduate study, your educational background, and anything else which seems relevant to your application.  You should explain why you think you would be a good fit for Dalhousie Classics, and mention specific faculty members with whom you are interested in working.  If you have a specific idea for your MA thesis, you could describe it, but you should also explain what your reserach interests are more generally.
