Our Five-Year Bachelor/Master's degree program is open to especially qualified undergraduate students. It permits you to complete the Bachelor of Arts with a major in Theology and Religious Studies and the Master of Arts in Theology in an accelerated timeframe of five years.
You will receive the Bachelor degree at the end of your Senior year; transfer to graduate status in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the end of your Senior year; and receive the Master degree upon completion of all graduate program requirements at the end of your fifth year of studies.
This course distribution permits you to graduate at the end of the spring semester or summer semester of the fifth year of studies. However, with the help of your academic advisor you may also develop a different course distribution.
The admission to our 5-year BA/MA program proceeds in two steps.
Inform your academic advisor about your interest in the 5-year program BEFORE you enroll in any undergraduate elective course.Your advisor will plan with you four graduate courses that replace four undergraduate elective courses.
Transfer to the MA program during the last semester of your Senior year.
