The College of Arts and Science (CAS) and the Graduate School of Arts and Science (GSAS) offer students in participating departments the opportunity to earn both a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in a shorter period of time and at a cheaper rate. Ideally, students in this accelerated program can complete both degrees in five years.
While still undergraduates, students on this track get a head start on graduate coursework. This allows them to finish a Master’s degree at CLACS within one additional year of study at GSAS after earning the Bachelor’s degree.
During their graduate school year, Bachelor's-Master's students are eligible for a tuition scholarship covering 50% of their Master's tuition and fees.

Prospective applicants should meet with the CLACS Director of Graduate Studies before submitting their BA/MA application. Typically students in the BA/MA track enroll in the introductory CLACS courses in the fall and spring semesters of their senior year.
