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 business administration, business information systems, computer information systems, criminal justice, interdisciplinary studies, paralegal studies, or other majors with permission of an academic advisor at the University to obtain both a bachelor's in their major and a master's in business and technology management, forensic studies, or healthcare management.
  • Chemistry or biotechnology majors (or those who have comparable coursework) may choose a BS/MS option that leads to a master's degree in forensic sciences.

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.
