Combined Degree Program


​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.

In the spring of their junior year, majors can apply for the combined Latin American and Latino Studies (BA) + Critical Ethnic Studies (MA). Students in this program take twelve graduate credit hours in their senior year; these graduate courses may apply toward both undergraduate Latin American/Latino Studies major field and graduate Critical Ethnic Studies requirements. Interested students should contact the Critical Ethnic Studies (CES) graduate director.

A variety of other combined degree options are available for majors within the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences as well as other colleges at DePaul. These options generally offer double-counting of undergraduate open elective credit with graduate program credit.
