Combined Bachelor’s + Master’s Degree Programs

The courses you’ll take during your senior year will count toward both your bachelor’s and master’s degree, saving you time and money, moving you seamlessly from your undergraduate classes right into your graduate coursework.

Create the combined degree program that's right for you
