Incoming bachelor’s students will apply through Undergraduate Admissions. After acceptance to Georgia State, students interested in a dual-degree program should discuss the requirements for eligibility with the dual-degree program coordinator at the start of their sophomore year.
If you’re a senior in high school or if you graduated from high school within the last two years, you’ll apply to begin your bachelor’s degree program using Georgia State’s Common Application.
International students: International applicants are those students who are in the U.S. on a non-immigrant visa (B-1, H-1, J-1, etc.), students who are living outside the U.S. and who will require an F-1 visa to study in the United States, students who are in the process of applying for Permanent Residency status, but have not yet received the Permanent Residency card or students who have been educated outside the U.S.
Transfer students: If you’re already in college but need a change, transferring to Georgia State can provide you with the opportunities you need to succeed — in school and after graduation.
Dual-Degree Program Eligibility
The Dual B.A./M.A. Program in Political Science is available to undergraduate majors who maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5. Students may apply at any time once they have taken between 90-100 credit hours and completed POLS 3800 (Research Methods).
Email CASDualDegree@gsu.edu to discuss eligibility with the coordinator of the dual-degree program, Ms. Rene Mondy. If eligible, you’ll be provided the dual-degree program electronic application to fill out. Decisions are typically emailed within 10 business days.
Students accepted into dual undergraduate/graduate programs must work with the program graduate director each term to develop a plan for taking graduate courses during their senior year (or earlier for specific programs) while still completing their final semesters of bachelor’s work.
Acceptance into the dual-degree program does not constitute admission to the graduate degree program. Admission to the graduate program occurs in the senior year of undergraduate study and is contingent upon 1) successful completion of the bachelor’s degree, 2) performance in the graduate-level courses taken during the bachelor’s degree and 3) meeting the other admission requirements of the specific program.
Dual Degree enrollment provides a range of benefits including the waiving of the GRE requirement and a graduate admission application fee when applying to the graduate program. Learn more about our dual degree program .
