This program allows outstanding undergraduates interested in Political Science to complete their B.A. and M.A. at UH in five years. This program saves students a year of time and tuition, and gives them a graduate degree that can help them be more competitive in the job market and on their applications to grad school and law school.
To be eligible for the program, students must maintain a minimum of 3.33 GPA.
Interested Juniors should submit a preliminary application by April 15. If admitted into the program, students would begin taking graduate-level courses in the Fall of their Senior year.
Shared Course Credit
The most important feature of the program is that 6 semester hours of graduate-level courses can be used as dual credit for both the B.A. and the M.A. degrees. All other requirements for the degrees must still be fulfilled.
