The Combined BA/MA Program in English

The Combined BATP/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. 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. The BA, the MA and the teacher certification will ALL be awarded when all requirements (including the MA) are completed. 

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 English Department Graduate Program Coordinator or the Graduate Program Director. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

For more information on the MA program in English, please see the   MA Handbook.
