Undergraduate students currently enrolled in Barnard College, Columbia College, General Studies, or the School of Engineering and Applied Science may request early admission to OHMA through the B.A./M.A. option. By way of this program, students have the opportunity to apply in their junior year to take OHMA's graduate-level coursework during the subsequent academic year.

The deadline and required materials for the B.A./M.A. option remain the same as the standard OHMA application. Interested students are encouraged to contact OHMA Director Amy Starecheski at and to submit an online application by our priority deadline of March 1, 2020.

Please note that admitted students to the B.A./M.A. option are not formally enrolled in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences until after conferral of their undergraduate degree, but that up to three graduate-level courses (nine to twelve credits) of level-5000 and above and/or one-half Resident Unit taken in excess to their bachelor’s program requirements may be transferred to OHMA.
