Combined Degree Programs

The Political Science Department offers five combined Bachelor's/Master's programs: Political Science, Legislative Affairs, Public Policy, Public Administration, and Political Management. Admission to these programs is highly competitive.

Application to one of these programs is accepted after a student completes 60 credit hours at GW and no later than the spring semester of junior year.

Applicants for combined degree programs must submit a Combined Bachelor's/Master's Program Application for Admission. In addition, applicants must submit a completed application form signed by the Director of Undergraduate Studies, a statement of purpose, a letter of recommendation from a current faculty member, and a resume or CV. These materials must be submitted to the front office (Monroe Hall 440) for consideration by the Director of Graduate Studies.
