Multi-award programs

  • Biology 
    This program is intended for students with specific career goals that require advanced degrees. It is also designed for those who haven’t chosen a profession and want to do advanced research or perform an additional internship before applying to graduate or medical school or other health professions program. Reducing the number of years to earn both degrees is a clear economic advantage. Students pay the less expensive undergraduate tuition rate for graduate-level courses. Like the existing M.S. program, the B.S./M.S. program provides two academic tracks: thesis and comprehensive exam.  
     
  • Childhood Inclusive Education & Literacy (B-12)
