Accelerated BS + MS in Biology

Students may apply for admission into the BS/MS accelerated degree program after completing at least 90 credits but no more than 120 credits towards their BS degree. Applicants to this program should have at least a 3.5 GPA.

Students in the BS/MS program will complete the 45 credits required for the MS in Biology degree during their junior and senior years in addition to the number of credits required for their undergraduate degree. Courses may not be double-counted for both the BS and MS degree. Students participating in a co-op will need to be on the spring-summer cycle.

If you are interested in applying for the BS/MS, please contact:

Biology Graduate Advisor Kate Pelusi at and submit your current plan of study, along with a short paragraph explaining why you are interested in pursuing the BS/MS degree.
