BA-MS and BA-MBA 5 year Pathway Programs
The Office of Admission is currently accepting applications for the Community Psychology, Leadership and Global Development, and MBA Pathway Programs.
The BA-MS and BA-MBA Pathway Programs are available for the Master of Science in Community Psychology, the Master of Science in Leadership and Global Development, and the Master of Business Administration. Qualified undergraduate students who wish to accelerate their education may begin graduate-level study during their senior year. Accepted students will take as many as nine (9) units of graduate course work and complete their master’s degree within the following 15 months. Students interested in taking advantage of this opportunity must submit a Graduate Application for Admission during their junior year.
To plan for a BA-MS Pathway or a BA-MBA Pathway, students should consult with an academic advisor.
The Four-Year Scholars Pathway Track
In a first-of-its-kind opportunity at Marymount California University, students may graduate in four years and receive diplomas for both bachelors’ and masters’ degrees. The Four-Year Scholars’ Pathway Track begins in the fall semester of 2017, complementing the existing Five-Year Pathway option. Participating students may pursue an undergraduate degree in business, criminal justice or psychology, and then in their junior year, students may begin coursework for a graduate degree in business (MBA) or a Master of Science in community psychology. The total units for each combination vary from 146 to 160 units, and summer school enrollment is necessary to complete the bachelor’s and master’s degrees in four years.
