    What is BA + MA course?

    The combined degree programmes are an appealing, efficient, and cost-effective option for motivated students seeking a competitive edge in the job market. Dual Degree programmes award two degrees despite the fact that the student enrols in a single study course for a consolidated time period. The individual receives both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in the same programme, but in less time. In this case, the degree conferred is a combined Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degree. Many colleges in India offer the MA (Integrated Course) in the Humanities Department. The goal of a dual degree programme is to shorten the time it takes to complete the two degrees. It enables students who choose it to obtain a double degree in a short period of time, as well as a specialisation in the subject of their choice. It allows students to graduate with a specialisation, which helps them get lucrative jobs with higher pay. Depending on the colleges and universities, the integrated course curriculum is typically divided into eight to ten semesters. Students will take courses required for their bachelor's degree programme during the first three years. Students begin taking graduate-level courses in their fourth year, which will satisfy both undergraduate degree requirements and count toward the MA degree. In the fifth year, students will take the remaining MA courses in a full-time format with graduate coursework.
