The purpose of the BA-MA/ BS-MA program is to enable superior undergraduate students at Yeshiva University to begin their studies for the MA degree. To be admitted to the program, students must have senior standing (94 credits). They may take up to 12 graduate credits (4 courses), but not more than 6 credits (2 courses) per semester, during their final year in college.

These credits may be counted toward both the BA and MA. (However, no more than 6 Revel credits can be counted toward the YC Jewish Studies major, and Revel courses do not count toward fulfillment of the YC Jewish Studies general education requirements.)

The  tuition  of  full-time  (12  credits)  undergraduate  students  covers  the  cost  of  the  graduate  courses.  A  part-time undergraduate  student  will  be  charged undergraduate  per-credit  charges  for the  undergraduate  courses  and graduate per-credit charges for the graduate courses.
