經101學年度第一學期第二次系務會議 (December 19, 2012)通過
The Five-Year BA-MA program is instituted to encourage distinguished undergraduate students in the department to start to pursue graduate studies in the department earlier (in their BA years), which enables them to study continually for a shorter period of time to get both a BA and MA degrees in English Studies.
Undergraduate students with distinguished academic performances each semester can apply to the department after an announcement is made. The number of students admitted will be determined and announced each year, and it should not exceed the quota given each year to the direct entry channel.

Those who pass the screening test will hold dual status: as BA degree candidates and preparatory graduate student (here after prep student).
A screening committee, composed of three full-time teachers, is formed respectively for selecting prep students of literature track and of multimedia English Teaching track. The convener is elected by three committee members.
Prep students are advised to take either Academic Writing or Research Methodology in their senior year. Prep students should get a BA degree and take graduate entrance exam (either direct entry or regular exam) to be admitted and qualified as graduate students.
Formally admitted students are allowed to apply the credits from the graduate courses they took in the department undergraduate program towards completing the requirements for their graduate degree, following “Fu Jen University Course Waiver Regulations.” (See appendix I.)
Once admitted, students of each track need to fulfill the track’s graduation requirements to be awarded MA diploma.
These regulations are passed in the department’s Faculty Meeting and then sent to the College council for approval for reference. Any revision will follow the same procedures.
