Combined BA/MA Program

The BA/MA Program was designed as a fast-track graduate degree completion plan for students who are interested in pursuing careers outside of geology that still require graduate-level coursework. Any geology major who meets the requirements may apply to the combined program during the second semester of their junior year. The student will receive a single BA/MA combined degree upon successful completion of the program. 

Acceptance Criteria: Minimum GPA of 3.0 in all courses required for the major, completion of the prerequisite courses, and two letters of recommendation from faculty members.
