Sociology MA, Combined Bachelor's + Master's Degree


The combined Bachelor's + Master of Arts degree programs allow students to complete 12 graduate credit hours while still enrolled as undergraduates. This option is available to Sociology majors as well as any undergraduate major at DePaul University. These 12 graduate credit hours can count as elective courses in their senior year as an undergraduate and they comprise the first year of the MA degree in Sociology. Combined degree participants will be awarded their bachelor's degrees upon completion of their undergraduate degree requirements. The MA degree will be awarded upon completion of the graduate degree requirements.

DePaul Undergraduate Degree + Sociology (MA)

Current DePaul undergraduate students with junior status (at least 88 credit hours) and a cumulative DePaul grade point average of 3.00 are eligible to apply to the Combined Bachelor's/MA program in Sociology. The application must be submitted no later than the end of the spring quarter of the junior year. Students will take three graduate elective courses in their senior year as an undergraduate; these courses comprise the first year of the MA degree program in Sociology. Students who did not take a bachelor's-level statistics course are strongly recommended to take SOC 402, as one of their electives taken during their senior year as an undergraduate.
