Admission to Dual/Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Degree Programs

The dual/accelerated bachelor’s to master’s degree programs offer outstanding students opportunities to advance their careers in significant ways by pursuing the bachelor’s and master’s degrees in a parallel and coordinated program. In addition, it may be possible for students to complete the requirements for both degrees (in the same field) in an accelerated time frame. The goal of this program is to provide students with a high level of academic advising culminating in the preparation of the graduate program of study while students are still in their sophomore or junior years. Dual/accelerated degree programs are available in:

  • BA to MA in communication

Each dual/accelerated program has specific admission requirements. Students should consult with the department’s graduate coordinator if they are interested in this type of program.

Students who are receiving federal financial aid should consult with a financial aid advisor to determine if taking graduate level coursework while an undergraduate student will impact their financial aid award.
