The BA/MA program allows qualified undergraduates to accelerate the process of earning a master’s degree. In The New School for Social Research, this program leads to master’s degrees in anthropology, economics, philosophy, politics, psychology, sociology, historical studies, or liberal studies. Undergraduate students in Eugene Lang College and The New School Bachelor of Arts program may apply for admission to the BA/MA program after successfully completing sixty credits of course work. An additional forty-eight undergraduate credits and thirty credits from The New School for Social Research must be accumulated in order to complete both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
Undergraduates who have been admitted to the BA/MA program may take up to twelve credits at The New School for Social Research which count toward the 120 undergraduate credits required for a BA. These nine to twelve credits may be applied toward the MA degree once the BA degree is completed, and the student has been admitted to The New School for Social Research and has registered. Credits will not be applied to the MA degree for courses in which the final grade is below a 3.0. In no case will graduate credit be awarded retroactively. Students are expected to continue in the MA program immediately following completion of the BA and must meet regular time limits. The nine to twelve graduate credits earned at the undergraduate level are included in the five-year time limit for completion of the MA. You can also look here for information.
