The B.A. to M.F.A. program option offers qualified Becker College Interactive Media undergraduates the opportunity to enroll in graduate courses and gain conditional* acceptance into the Master of Fine Arts in Interactive Media program while completing their undergraduate degree. Students enrolled in the Game+ program can earn both their BA and MFA in just five years!
All required undergraduate courses are completed during the first three years of undergraduate study with the fourth year acting as a bridge year into the graduate program. In the fifth and final year of study students will complete their graduate research and thesis projects.
Students wishing to take advantage of the Game+ option should indicate their intentions in their freshman year to be placed on the correct academic course track and should consult with their Academic Advisors and the MFA Program Director to ensure that their schedules align with the B.A. to M.F.A program curriculum.
Students must meet the following requirements for their first three undergraduate years:
*Conditional acceptance allows students to enroll in graduate courses during their senior year of undergraduate study. Upon graduation and successful completion of all B.A. to M.F.A. requirements, this student may be awarded unconditional acceptance into the graduate program, requiring only one additional year to complete the Master of Fine Arts degree curriculum.
Students who do not meet all B.A to M.F.A requirements may still apply for acceptance to the program but must include 2 letters of recommendation and a personal statement along with their portfolio for review. Acceptance will be at the discretion of the Application Review Committee and the Program Director.
