Dual Degree Option
The combined B.A./M.A. in Museum Professions allows Seton Hall University undergraduate students to take 12 graduate credits during their junior and senior years. These 12 credits count toward both the B.A. and the M.A. degree. Following graduation, students complete the remaining 27 credits of the M.A. degree.
Students are admitted into the dual degree program at the end of their sophomore year. Admission is based on GPA, application essay and interview. Students must maintain a 3.0 GPA average in the four graduate courses in order to be allowed to continue in the M.A. degree program. Students can have any undergraduate major from within the College of Arts and Sciences, as long as they complete four undergraduate courses in art history before they receive their B.A. degree.
A completed application package for the dual degree program consists of:
- Completed application
- Two (2) letters of recommendation
- Transcripts from all previous colleges and universities (including Seton Hall University)
- Personal statement
- Resume or CV
- Application fee
Additionally, all applicants are required to have an interview with a full-time faculty member, either on campus or over the phone. Applicants will be contacted to set up this interview once the application package is complete. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.
A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required, although under certain circumstances the GPA requirement may be waived.
