Combined B.A./M.A.

Students who began their Brandeis undergraduate careers in fall 2010 or before may apply for the BA/MA program.  Applications must be made no later than April 30 preceding the senior year.  Only students with exceptional undergraduate records and significant scholarly promise will be admitted to the BA/MA program.  Consultation with the adviser is highly recommended by the beginning of the sixth semester; transfer students should apply by the fourth semester of residence.  All applications should include a proposed course of study, specifying how all degree requirments will be met.  A consistent record of superior performance in history courses is required.  The total number of courses required for completion of a BA/MA program is thirty-eight, of which at least four must be at the graduate level and not counted toward the major requirements.
