Increase the return on your investment by earning a bachelor's degree and master's degree at an accelerated pace. The Information Science Bachelor's-Accelerated Master's ("BAM") degree at CU Boulder has been created in recognition of the increasing demand for master's level training and research skills.
The BAM has the same number of required credits as a regular bachelor's degree and master's program. The difference comes from being able to complete several of your master's degree courses while you are still completing your undergraduate courses.
Students may take up to and including 12 credit hours while in the undergraduate program which can later be used toward Master’s degree requirements. Six credits may be double-counted toward both the bachelor’s degree and master’s degree. Double counted courses may not be used toward a subsequent doctoral program (or additional master’s program) at CU Boulder.
