SF State Scholars Blended Program

The International Relations SF State Scholars Blended program (B.A. + 1 year = M.A.) allows for current IR undergraduate majors to complete a M.A. in International Relations with one additional year of study. In a combined program, students take up to 15 units of graduate classes while completing their B.A. degree and finish their M.A. degree in one additional year. The program enables students to spread the challenge of an M.A. over their undergraduate and graduate careers so that they use their time and money wisely toward an education that will enhance their career prospects.
