Accelerated Master's Program
Ball State undergraduate students have the option to begin their Media graduate studies early. With our Accelerated Master's Program in Media, students can begin taking classes as juniors or seniors, allowing them to complete both their BA or BS and MA in five years.
Undergraduate students can begin taking graduate courses if they have earned 75 credit hours and have a 3.5 GPA, or if they have earned 90 credit hours and have a 3.25 GPA. This program allows students to receive six hours of dual credit that can be applied to both their undergraduate and graduate programs. Students will be able to begin their studies in the fall, spring, or summer sessions.
For more information about our Accelerated Master's Program in Media, contact Dr. Robert Brookey, Director of Graduate Studies in Media.
