Combined BS/MS Programs
The BS/MS program gives academically successful undergraduates the opportunity to pursue the MS degree while completing their BS degree, representing both a time and cost savings.
- The entire dual degree program can be completed in five years, as three 400-level courses, taken as a senior, count toward both the bachelor's degree and the master's degree.
- The application fee is waived for BS/MS applicants, and there is an additional financial benefit: the double-counted courses are billed only once, at the undergraduate tuition rate.
Two recommendation letters from department faculty are required.
