Accelerated BA/MA Degree

This program allows a select group of upper-level Georgetown University undergraduates in the College and School of Foreign Service to enroll in the MAGIC program as seniors, taking two to four graduate courses in their senior year. Two of these classes will be double-counted towards both undergraduate and MAGIC requirements. In addition, SFS International History majors may choose between Hist 305 and Hist 505, rather than taking both.  Students in the accelerated program can complete the requirements of the MAGIC degree in as little as two semesters (and no more than three semesters) following their graduation from the College or SFS.

The program is open to History majors, as well as to students in other fields whose curricular backgrounds suggest a strong interest in, and capacity for, the study of history. Students should have an overall GPA of at least 3.67. All applicants are required to have enrolled in at least two upper-level (i.e. 300- or 400-level) History colloquia by the time of their application to the Accelerated MAGIC Degree Program.

Application for the program should be made either in the second semester of the applicant's junior year or the first semester of the applicant's senior year. For further inquiries, please contact Meredith McKittrick, Director of MA Programs, or Carolina Madinaveitia, Graduate Programs Manager.
