Bachelor's to Master's Scholars Program
Our accelerated Bachelor's to Master's Scholars Program (formerly known as "2+1") offers qualified students the unique opportunity to finish a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in just three years, saving significant amounts of time and tuition funds.
Bachelor's to Master's Scholars may take up to three graduate, 500-level classes during their senior year.
