Combined Baccalaureate/Master’s Degree Program

An undergraduate student who plans to go on to graduate study in Accounting, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Community Counseling, Health Administration/Human Resources, Nursing, Rehabilitation Counseling, School Counseling, Software Engineering, Theology or numerous programs in the field of Education may be eligible for admission to the Combined Baccalaureate/Master’s Degree Program. This program allows an undergraduate student already enrolled in one of these fields, and who has excellent academic records, to complete requirements for the baccalaureate, while also electing graduate courses.

Departments participating in this program may allow some graduate work to satisfy undergraduate degree requirements (not to exceed 12 credit hours). In participating undergraduate departments, the student’s advisor will recommend the undergraduate course work for which graduate credits may be substituted.

The selection of the graduate course work, the particular credits to be applied toward an undergraduate degree, and a prospectus of study require the approval of the student’s undergraduate program advisor, the chair of the department housing the student’s undergraduate degree program, the graduate program director in the student’s academic discipline, the appropriate undergraduate-program dean, and the dean of the College of Graduate and Continuing Education.

The Combined Baccalaureate/Master’s Degree student will be expected to complete his/her baccalaureate degree no later than the semester in which he/she completes the master’s degree. Often, the student entering the Combined Baccalaureate/Master’s Degree Program will complete both programs during a five-year time period.
