What is required for the writing sample?
A writing sample is required of all MA applicants. Wherever possible, it should be an academic research paper, preferably on a philosophical or theological topic, of no more than 20 pages. It should use a recognized academic format (the Turabian style is standard at the GTU) for footnotes and bibliography. A graded copy is not required, but it must be free of spelling errors, demonstrate good grammar, and be generally well-structured and clearly argued.
