Accelerated BA/MA in Political Science
The Accelerated B.A./M.A. enables talented Political Science majors to start taking graduate courses before they have completed requirements for the B.A., reducing the amount of time that it takes to earn both degrees. Two graduate-level classes will count toward both the B.A. and the M.A. Application is easy: no application fee or standardized test scores are required.
Application. Ordinarily, students must be Political Science majors with an undergraduate GPA of at least 3.4, overall and in political science courses, to be admitted. Students should apply during the spring semester of the junior year, although applications will be considered up to but not including the student's final semester of undergraduate work. Applicants must provide a one-page statement of purpose and fill in this form. Please hand in the form to the department's Director of Graduate Studies.
