Review the BA/MA information sheet—including the application form and requirements of the MA in WRD—very carefully.
If you are pre-junior status, feel free to contact Professor Vandenberg to let him know of your interest in the program. Stay connected during each advising period to be sure that your undergraduate course choices are optimal for entry into the BA/MA program.
If you are already a junior (88-132 hours), schedule an appointment with Professor Vandenberg as soon as possible to discuss your academic and career goals—an MA program is a specialized degree, and you want to make sure it will lead in the direction you intend to go. Whether or not you intend to formally apply to the program, please bring a completed application form to your meeting with him—that will ensure the most productive meeting possible.
Your application must be complete and received by Professor Vandenberg, the Combined Degree Coordinator (CDC) during your junior year. Admissions deadlines are rolling. To begin in Autumn, submit by March 15; to begin in Winter, submit by October 15; to begin in Spring, submit by January 5.
