Coterminal Bachelor's and Master's in Linguistics

Undergraduates in conversation outside Meyer Library

The Department of Linguistics admits a limited number of undergraduates to the coterminal degree program, which allows them to receive the B.A. and M.A. degrees simultaneously.

Students admitted to this program complete the requirements for both the major in Linguistics and the M.A. degree in Linguistics, including writing an M.A. thesis.  Thus, the coterminal degree provides students with the opportunity to carry out a more extensive research project than is typical with solely a B.A. degree.

University requirements for the coterminal M.A. are described in the "Coterminal Bachelor's and Master's Degrees" section of ExploreDegrees.  For University coterminal degree program rules and University application forms, see the Stanford Undergrad Coterm Guide.

How to Apply

Specific instructions may be found on the How to apply page for the M.A. degree.
