Accelerated Degree Programs

A combined degree program is an integrated program of study designed to result in students earning two distinct University degrees in parallel by completing the requirements of two full degree programs, typically over a period of time shorter than would otherwise be required to complete both programs sequentially. It requires the completion of all requirements for each degree, but allows students to count designated credits to fulfill the requirements for both degrees. Students must be accepted into the combined degree program,meet the requirements for each degree, and follow the rules for the transfer or use of credit from one program to the other. Combined degree programs are primarily designed for the degrees to be earned concurrently; however, degrees may be earned consecutively.
