Five-Year B.A./M.A. Program
Undergraduate students who are history majors or secondary education/ history majors may apply for “Graduate Standing” after completing 90 undergraduate credit hours. If their applications are approved by the Graduate History Admissions Committee, such students may take up to two graduate history courses (six credits) prior to the completion of their bachelor’s degree. These two graduate courses, when combined with six graduate history credits during the summer following graduation and nine hours each semester during their fifth year, will allow these students to complete all requirements for the M.A. in history by the end of their fifth year. As with traditional graduate students in history, students selecting the B.A./M.A. option must maintain a B average in all graduate courses.
