Students who are interested in applying to the accelerated B.A./M.A. track in Near Eastern Studies (NEST) should first consult the program requirements for the M.A. degree as listed in the GSAS Bulletin, and the specific application requirements noted below.
Then, students should meet with an adviser in CAS to consider their curricular fit with the accelerated program.
Following your CAS appointment, you must contact the program's Director of Graduate Studies, Jared McCormick, to request a separate meeting to discuss your interest in the B.A./M.A.
You should take a copy of your transcript from Albert to the Director of Graduate Studies meeting.
If the CAS Advising Center clears you for application eligibility and the Director of Graduate Studies agrees that you have things well underway toward satisfying the requirements specific to the NEST BA/M.A. (as noted below), you can apply for the program online, and your application will be sent to the NEST admissions committee for final approval.
