​The combined Bachelor's/Master's degree programs allow students to complete 12 graduate credit hours while still undergraduates. These 12 graduate credit hours will count toward both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

Students interested in applying to one of the BA/MA programs in International Studies should contact the INT academic advisor, Mallory Warner, at mallory.warner@depaul.edu.

International Studies (BA)/International Studies (MA)

INT majors apply to this program by April 15th of their junior year.  Applicants must have completed INT 201, INT 202, and INT 203 with a grade of B+ or higher and have an overall GPA of 3.5 or above.  

INT students in this program take INT 401 and two other 400-level courses in their senior year. For students admitted to the five-year program, the three graduate-level INT courses taken in the senior year will count toward their individualized concentrations in the INT major as well as their graduate degree. Additionally, BA/MA students will begin their thesis research during their senior year in INT 301, the International Studies Senior Seminar.

History (BA)/International Studies (MA)

History majors apply to this program by April 15th of their junior year. Applicants must have an overall GPA of 3.5 or above.

History students in this program take INT 401 and two other INT 400-level courses in their senior year. These three graduate-level courses will count toward open electives in the history major as well as requirements in the MA degree. Whenever possible, HST majors will begin their thesis research during their senior year in  HST 390, the History Senior Seminar. If this is not possible (e.g. a student's thesis interests do not fit within the theme of HST 390 for that year), then HST majors will be required to take INT 301 as an elective in order to begin their thesis research. 

Other DePaul Majors (BA or BS)/International Studies (MA)

Students in any undergraduate major at DePaul University are invited to apply to the five year combined degree program in order to complete the MA in International Studies in their fifth year at DePaul. Applications are due by April 15th of the student's junior year. Applicants must have an overall GPA of 3.5 or above.

Students in this program will take INT 401 and two other INT 400-level courses in their senior year. These three graduate-level courses will count as undergraduate electives as well as requirements in the MA degree. Students are also required to take INT 301 in their senior year in order to begin their thesis research.
