Political Science, B.A./M.A.

Return to: 3470 Department of Political Science  

The department offers a dual Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in Political Science. The dual degree opportunity enables qualified students to enroll in graduate courses late in their undergraduate program and apply the coursework toward both the bachelor’s and master’s programs. Typically, students apply four graduate Political Science courses (12 hours) to their undergraduate degree requirements in Area H.

Students must be formally accepted into the dual degree program by the department and College of Arts and Sciences to be able to take graduate courses as an undergraduate. Additionally, acceptance into the dual program does not constitute admission to the master’s program. Students must fulfill regular graduate admissions requirements and apply for the master’s program following college processes. Once admitted, they will need to fulfill the regular M.A. requirements listed above for each concentration, though they may take up to 9 experiential learning hours (POLS 8995 - Administrative/Policy Internship ) as a substitute for general required courses.

Information about the dual program, including application instructions and program requirements, can be found at cas.gsu.edu/dual-degrees/.
