The department offers outstanding students the option to complete their master's degree within four years (8 semesters).
The track allows for the receipt of a "bachelor's" degree upon completion of the quota of undergraduate studies while studying for a master's degree.
As a rule, students studying in the track are committed to the entire study quota of a bachelor's degree (60 points) in the department and of a master's degree (32 credits).
In the first year, students will study according to the regular BA program; in the second year they will study according to the BA program as well as one seminar from the third year program; in the third year, they will study according to the BA program (a BA seminar and a historiographical lesson) as well as the first part of the MA program which consists of: a specialization seminar, a methodological seminar, KM? and elective classes.
In the fourth year, the students will study 2 specialization seminars, a methodological seminar, guided reading, and the rest of the elective courses up to the scope of 32 credits. In addition, at the beginning of the fourth year, students in this track will submit their research proposal to the Departmental MA committee.
Students who have completed their first year of BA studies with an average of at least 85 will be accepted into the program. An interview will be held by the Departmental MA Committee, during the summer between the second and third years of study. The status of a full-fledged MA student will only be achieved by completing all the BA degree requirements.
