The Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s program is designed for academically superior undergraduate students at UMBC in any major. Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s students may take up to 9 credits in their senior year that count for both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees. This reduces the number of credits required for the master’s degree. For example, students who complete the maximum of 9 graduate credits in their senior year need to complete only 21 additional credits for the master’s degree.
Students are eligible for admission into the Bachelor’s/Master’s program after they have earned 90 undergraduate credits. Plan to apply for admission by the second semester of your junior year.
- Earn an M.A. in 12-18 months
