COMBINED BA/MA IN THEOLOGY AND RELIGIOUS STUDIES

Integrate your studies with a combined Bachelor/Master Degree.

Students wishing to complete the Bachelor of Arts in Theology and Religious Studies and the Master of Arts in Theology can earn this combined degree in as little as five years. In your junior and senior years, you will replace four undergraduate elective courses with four graduate courses—which count towards both degrees. Receive the bachelor's degree at the end of your senior year and transfer to graduate status in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. You will then take six graduate courses in your fifth year of studies, receiving your master's degree upon completion of all graduate program requirements.

Benefits of the BA/MA program:
  • Expenses for courses that count towards both the Bachelor and the Master are covered by your undergraduate tuition and by tuition remission.
  • You are responsible for paying for six graduate courses only.
