JUMP Program

Get a head start on your Master of Arts in Public Affairs with UAH's Joint Undergraduate Master's Program (JUMP)!

JUMP allows undergraduate students to take up to 12 hours of graduate-level courses their senior year. These courses then double-count toward both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees. However, because they pay only once – at the undergraduate rate – they are able to save money and earn their graduate degree in less time. There’s also no application fee, and students in the program are not required to take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE).

Political science majors interested in applying to JUMP should meet the following criteria:

  • Have sophomore or junior standing
  • Have a GPA of 3.25 or better
  • Have completed at least 9 hours of political science coursework at UAH, with at least 6 hours at the 300 level or above

For more information, contact Dr. John Pottenger at john.pottenger@uah.edu or  256.824.2313.
