B.A. to M.A. in Mental Health Counseling Program

B.A. to M.A. Program

The B.A. to M.A. Program option affords qualified Becker College undergraduate students the opportunity to gain conditional acceptance into the M.A. in Mental Health Counseling program as early as their junior year. Upon successful completion of all B.A. to M.A. requirements, qualified students will be awarded unconditional acceptance into the graduate program, and will require 1 ½ years to complete the Master of Arts degree curriculum.

Three tracks available:

Eligibility Criteria:

Eligibility for enrollment in the B.A. to M.A. program includes the following:
• GPA of 3.3 or higher*
• Completion of at least 75 credits prior to graduate course enrollment
• 5 or more psychology electives remaining
• Enrollment in 9 or more credits per term

* Modified Eligibility Policy:
Students who have a GPA of at least 2.75 but less than 3.3 may request enrollment in the B.A. to M.A. program by providing two (2) recommendations from Becker faculty attesting to the student’s ability to succeed in graduate level courses, as well as a recent work sample from an upper level Psychology course (2000-level or higher). All other eligibility requirements regarding completed credits, remaining electives and credit load remain the same as those stated above. Students who obtain permission to enroll in the B.A. to M.A. program through this modified eligibility policy must obtain a passing grade in each graduate course, in accordance with the grading policies of the master’s program, to enroll in subsequent graduate courses as an undergraduate student. 

All students are eligible for consideration as applicants to the M.A. program upon completion of the B.A. regardless the grades obtained in the graduate courses.

Students who have not met this minimum grade requirement and/or for whom there is evidence of disciplinary action against them will be required to submit two (2) letters of recommendation and a personal essay.
