Shared-Credit Bachelor/Master Degrees

Several departments offer the opportunity to work toward your Master's degree while working on your undergraduate Bachelor's degree by sharing credit between both degrees in your final year. This allows you to complete your Master's degree in one year instead of two, saving you thousands of dollars while you build on the relationships you've already established in your undergraduate studies. Master's degrees are desired or required by certain employers, and are often a stepping stone to a Ph.D. Pursuing a Ph.D. is a big commitment - both financially and temporally - and this is a great way to see if it's a path for you.

Each department has its own specifications for these programs, so please confirm any application or graduation requirements with your advisor and the department.
