The Combined BA/MA in English
The Combined BA-MA allows the highest achieving undergraduate English majors early admission into the English MA Program. Once admitted, students take four graduate English courses in place of undergraduate courses that are similar in content. The combined degree has two tracks: one leads to English Teacher Certification, while the other leads only to the MA. This program is designed for students to finish both the undergraduate and graduate degree in five years, although there is no requirement to finish in this period.
Please note that graduate tuition is charged at a different rate than undergraduate tuition, and undergraduate financial aid cannot be used once students are designated as graduate students.
For more information, including application procedures, please contact the Graduate Program Coordinator or the Graduate Program Director. Applications are due January 15 for fall semester matriculation and October 1 for spring semester matriculation. Exceptions to the admissions deadlines may be granted on a case by case basis.
