The BS/MS program offers you the chance to more quickly pursue a master’s degree. Students admitted to the BS/MS program prior to July 2019 follow the concurrent Bachelor’s/Master’s structure outlined below. Students admitted after July 2019 will follow the Bachelor's–Accelerated Master’s (BAM) structure.
The complete BS/MS program generally adds one to two years to your education, depending on your course load. Though the master’s components can be completed in one year, many students find the course load is easier when spread over a longer period of time. The BS/MS program is faster than a standalone master's program, because you can apply up to six credit hours to both the BS and MS components. BS/MS students are also required to take only one semester of Graduate Seminar unlike students in a standalone master’s program who take two semesters of Graduate Seminar.
Please contact Graduate Academic Advisor Anna Guy with any questions about the BS/MS program.
