You can Receive Your BA and MA in English With Our Combined-Degree Program
Students who wish to pursue their MA in English have an opportunity with this program to start fulfilling graduate level coursework during their senior year. Usually, students take one graduate class per semester during the final year of their BA, and in a fifth year, students take a total of 8 graduate classes.
Upon completion, students graduate from GW with both their Bachelors and Masters degrees in English. In addition, students participate in a portfolio review of selected graduate papers written during their career in the program.
Students interested in our combined-degree program can obtain an application from the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Professor Alcorn. Applications will then be evaluated by the graduate committee and Junior applicants will be informed of the committee’s decision by April 30th.
