International Studies (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.

INT majors apply to this program by April 15th of their junior year. Applicants must have completed INT 201, INT 202, and INT 203 with a grade of B+ or higher and have an overall GPA of 3.5 or above.  

INT students in this program take INT 401 and two other 400-level courses in their senior year. For students admitted to the five-year program, the three graduate-level INT courses taken in the senior year will count toward their individualized concentrations in the INT major as well as their graduate degree. Additionally, BA/MA students will begin their thesis research during their senior year in INT 301, the International Studies Senior Seminar.
