The B.A./M.A. Program in History

The B.A./M.A. Program allows selected students to earn both a B.A. and an M.A. in History in five years. Students use up to four undergraduate history courses toward their M.A.: any two upper-division undergraduate courses, plus two more courses taken for graduate credit in the senior year.

How to Apply

Students must submit applications by the end of the second semester of junior year. The required application materials are a 500-word statement of purpose, a 12-15 page writing sample, at least two letters of recommendation, and an official transcript. Please see the MCAS Graduate Program Admission page for application instructions. 

Do not send any materials to the History Department.
