Graduate Admissions

Earn Two Degrees in Five Years

Plus 1 Programs are designed so that students can acquire both a bachelor's and master's degree in a total of five years. Plus 1 Programs generally begin in the summer after graduation from your baccalaureate program. You'll enter the job market with a competitive advantage, and you'll be ahead of your classmates in two-year graduate programs.
 
All benefits of the Bachelor's to Master's Programs  -- waiver of GRE and application fee, overlapping requirements, cost and time savings -- apply to Plus 1 programs, where you have the additional benefit of acquiring the master's level skills and credentials you want in as little as one additional year. 

The procedures for entering a Plus 1 Program are the same as for Bachelor's to Master's. Contact the department’s graduate coordinator as early as your sophomore year in order to receive the most benefit from advising on course selection.  To apply with the Office of Graduate Admissions, please download the paper application form (pdf).
