The program requires two years as an undergraduate Sociology major with a GPA of 3.5. Students apply for the B.A. /M.A program in their junior year—making sure to take Soci 3010, Soci 3020, and Soci 3030 by the end of their junior year. In their senior year, participants will take four graduate-level courses and apply for the graduate program. In their fifth year, participants will finish the M.A. coursework, and either do an internship or write a thesis.
Students must be formally accepted into the dual degree program by the department and College of Arts and Sciences to be able to take graduate courses as an undergraduate. Additionally, acceptance into the dual program does not constitute admission to the master’s program. Students must fulfill regular graduate admissions requirements and apply for the master’s program following college processes.
