The Department of History and Corcoran School of the Arts and Design in the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences together offer a dual bachelor of arts with a major in history and master of arts in the field of museum studies degree program. The programs allow students to take 6 graduate credits as part of their undergraduate degree, thereby decreasing the number of credits normally required for the master's. All requirements for both degrees must be fulfilled.

Students interested in the dual degree program must apply to the master's program in the spring semester of their junior year.
