Accelerate your education.
The Bachelor’s-Accelerated Master’s (BAM) degree enables currently enrolled undergraduate students to receive both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree within five years.
You will receive your bachelor’s degree first but begin taking graduate coursework as an undergraduate — typically during senior year. This enables you to fast-track your graduate studies while obtaining their master’s degree at a lower cost. Pursuing a BAM degree at CU allows students to continue working with their established faculty mentors during further graduate studies.
Undergraduates are not allowed to apply to be admitted to a CS-related BAM in the term they are graduating from their undergraduate degree. An undergraduate student receives the best value from a BAM program in both time and money if they are able to take all four graduate classes that the BAM program allows before they graduate with their undergraduate degree.
We currently have three master's programs with an accelerated master's option for students pursuing BA, BS or Post Bacc in computer science:
