Graduate Program

Pursuing an MA

The Master of Arts degree at Washington College has three concentrations but offers the same unique liberal arts environment as our undergraduate degrees. 


The Master of Arts degree will be awarded to those students who complete a planned 30 semester-hour program of graduate study as specified by the appropriate department. All graduate courses at Washington College are three credits each.


Students not formally admitted to the Graduate Program may enroll in individual classes as non-degree students. Students may complete up to two courses as non-degree students with no official declaration of intent. Upon completion of two courses, the student must be admitted to a degree program or officially declare their permanent status as a non-degree seeking student. Students not declaring an official status will be unable to register for subsequent terms. Only two courses completed prior to formal admission will be counted toward completion of course requirements for the Master’s Degree.
