BS/MS Degree Options

Highly motivated and academically qualified undergraduates may accelerate their undergraduate studies and earn both a bachelor's and a master's degree in as few as five years through the BS/MS Option.

  • BS/MS options have been designed to permit undergraduates majoring in Accounting, Business Administration, Business Information Systems, Computer Information Systems, or Paralegal Studies at the University (or students in other majors with permission from the undergraduate division director or department chair) to obtain both a bachelor's in their major and a master's in Advanced Information Technologies, Business and Technology Management, or Forensic Studies.
  • Chemistry majors (or those who have comparable coursework) may choose a BS/MS option that leads to a master's degree in Forensic Science.

Transfer students are also eligible to apply for the BS/MS option. The transferability of credits from an institution that is not accredited by a regional accreditation agency may be considered upon the receipt of documentation that demonstrates equivalency regarding course information, equivalencies, and learning outcomes. It is the student's responsibility to provide this documentation.
