Combined Degree (BA/MA) Programs
The Department of Sociology offers a combined degree option for undergraduate majors who would like to continue their education in the field. The program enables students to earn both a Bachelor's and Master's degree in the major area within about five years by counting some coursework toward both degrees.
Students who are admitted to the Combined Degree Program are able to take graduate courses during their senior year, and 9 credits will count toward both the BA and MA degrees. This allows for a considerable cost and time savings, and also helps our department retain and further our engagement with our best students.
