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. 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 Margaret Hanley. Applications are due January 15 for fall semester matriculation and October 15 for spring semester matriculation. Exceptions to the admissions deadlines may be granted on a case by case basis.

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