    • Discuss your personal responses to those elements you choose and

      • A strong vision for why an individualized course of study meets your areas of interests better than an already designed, traditional program (Individualized Master of Arts only);

      • Strong writing skills;
      • Comfort and experience with computers and internet technology.
    • What did you learn about yourself in your undergraduate years with respect to your study and time management habits, and how will you use this learning to help you succeed in graduate school?
