The College of Communication and the Arts offers two accelerated dual B.A./M.A. degree programs:
- B.A./M.A. in Communication
- B.A./M.A. in Museum Professions
- M.A./M.A. Communication/Diplomacy and International Relations
Each student’s program is unique and crafted in consultation with both an undergraduate and graduate academic adviser. Timeline varies based on academic progress and completed coursework.
Qualified students are considered for admission to the B.A./M.A. dual degree program either:
- as an incoming freshman or
- following application after the completion of at least 45 undergraduate credits.
Students may apply for admission to the dual degree program with additional credits, but no later than the end of junior year (i.e. 90 credits).
For all students, eligibility for admission will be confirmed upon completion of at least 45 undergraduate credits (with a minimum GPA of 3.0 or higher) and submission and review at the graduate-level of the following materials:
- Online graduate application;
- Resume or CV;
- Personal statement;
- Transcript from any postsecondary institution attended (other than Seton Hall);
- Two (2) letters of recommendation; and
- GRE or Miller Analogies Test (MAT) scores*
Admission is based on earning a 3.0 minimum GPA and all submitted application items. Students from all undergraduate degree programs are welcome to apply, assuming they have completed four undergraduate courses in art history before completing their baccalaureate degree.
