Eligible Missouri State University majors in Global Studies, Political Science, and other relevant disciplines may apply for preliminary acceptance into the Master of Global Studies (MGS) program after admission requirements for the accelerated master's option have been satisfied. If accepted, both the undergraduate and graduate requirements for dual-listed courses (500 and 600/700 level courses) must have been fulfilled to be counted for both the undergraduate and graduate degrees (Mixed Credit). This option gives exceptional undergraduate students the opportunity to complete their bachelor's and master's degrees in ten semesters and a summer. Refer to the Graduate Catalog for more information.
For courses to be designated as Mixed Credit, the graduate advisor, undergraduate department head, and Graduate College dean must approve by signing the Permission for Mixed Credit form. This form must be provided to the Office of the Registrar in Carrington Hall 320 no later than the end of the Change of Schedule Period for the semester.
