4 plus 1

Earn your bachelor's degree and master's degree in 5 years in a 4+1 program

Save time, tuition and easily transition into grad school with our accelerated master's degree programs known as 4+1 degrees.

Sharing 12 credit hours across the undergraduate major and graduate program, you earn your master’s in one year rather than two. (You also pay undergraduate tuition for those 12 credits rather than graduate tuition).

A minimum 3.0 GPA is required but there is no entry exam. You apply for the program after you have completed at least 75 credit-hours in your undergraduate degree — but you can begin planning early to build the 4+1 into your college journey.

The 4+1 pathway is available for these College of Integrative Sciences and Arts bachelor's degree programs. Find out if your degree qualifies, and then take the next step -- we'll get you connected with the right person to guide your planning.
