Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Section X: Programs of Study

For a limited number of qualified undergraduate students, the sociology department offers an accelerated five-year program leading to a BA in sociology and an MS in social research. The program requires a total of 145 credits of college work (100 undergraduate, 45 graduate). To get the maximum financial benefit from BA/MS program, students should apply before the number of cumulative credits taken (including those being taken currently) exceeds 100 credits. All credits above 120 will be charged at the graduate tuition rates. The BA/MS program is a full-time program requiring 12 graduate credits per term.


In order to be admitted to the program students must complete their basic requirements, including their major, pass an honors course or its equivalent (cross listed graduate course, honors independent study), have an overall GPA of at least 3.5 and meet other requirements of the MS program as listed below (with the exception of the GRE exam). BA/MS applicants should have no more than 100 credits completed before entering the program and can apply for fall or spring admission. Applications on forms provided by the undergraduate advising office are filed with the undergraduate advisor, and include a copy of the current transcript and two letters of recommendation.

Students are admitted to the BA/MS program at the end of their junior year but must consult with the undergraduate advisor before they file the application.
