B.A. in History/M.S. in Ed Adolescence Education, B.A/M.S


This program is designed for students interested in teaching 7th-12th grade History.  In five years students will be able to complete all required courses for a bachelor’s degree in History, a master’s in education, and New York Certification in adolescence education with or without dual certification in teaching students with disablities.

Students will be admitted into the B.A. History/M.S. Ed adolescence program upon application to Mount Saint Mary College in their freshmen year.  Requirements for entrance and continuing enrollment in the 5-year master’s program in History/adolescence education are:

  • Incoming freshmen must meet 2 of the following 3 criteria: a. 85 scholastic average in HS; b. Top 30% of their graduating class; c. SAT scores of 1000 (critical reading and mathematics)
  • Students transferring into the program (internally or externally) must have a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA).
  • Students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average throughout the five years of the program and must pass ED 2051, Orientation to Teaching.  Students who transfer ED 2051 from another college must pass the writing assessment section of ED 20151 at Mount Saint Mary College.
  • Students in the 5-year Master’s program will be evaluated at the end of each semester.  Students who do not meet the minimum 3.0 GPA requirement in any semester will be placed on probation.  Only one probationary period will be allowed; students who fail to meet the minimum GPA requirement for more than one semester will be removed from the program and placed into a BA program in History.

Admissions criteria of the college will be applied along with the maintenance of a 3.0 Grade Point Average throughout the five-year program for those selecting this degree option. For those who may choose to apply for the five-year master’s degree option after initial admission,  either as a transfer student or a MSMC student who choses to change majors, will come under the original admissions stipulations at the time they apply for the five-year master’s option.  Each student in the program will be assigned two advisers: one from the Division of Social Sciences and one from the Division of Education.

Students in the five-year master’s degree program may elect to remove themselves from the program and enter a bachelor’s degree program at Mount Saint Mary College at any time.  However, no more than 6 credits of graduate education courses may be counted toward an individual bachelor’s degree if a student leaves the five-year master’s program for any reason.  These graduate credits may not then be used toward a master’s degree.

Both degrees will be awarded at the completion of the fifth year of the program.
