Get Master’s Credit While Earning Your Bachelor’s

Our combined degree option is a great way to save time and money by allowing you to work toward two degree levels at the same time.

How it Works

If you’re an eligible student, enrolled in an eligible bachelor’s specialization, you’ll have the option to take master’s level courses and have the credits applied to both your bachelor’s and master’s degree requirements.

A combined degree option allows you to:

  • Save thousands in tuition compared to pursuing each degree separately.
  • Complete your master’s degree up to 6 months (2 quarters) sooner.
