History (BA) + International Studies (MA)


The combined Bachelor's + Master's degree programs allow students to complete 12 graduate credit hours while still undergraduates. These 12 graduate credit hours will count toward both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

Students interested in applying to one of the BA + MA programs in International Studies should contact the chair of the INT Department, Dr. Shiera Malik, smalik6@depaul.edu.

History majors apply to this program by April 15th of their junior year. Applicants must have an overall GPA of 3.5 or above.

History students in this program take INT 401 and two other INT 400-level courses in their senior year. These three graduate-level courses will count toward open electives in the history major as well as requirements in the MA degree. Whenever possible, HST majors will begin their thesis research during their senior year in HST 390, the History Senior Seminar. If this is not possible (e.g. a student's thesis interests do not fit within the theme of HST 390 for that year), then HST majors will be required to take INT 301 as an elective in order to begin their thesis research.
