Accelerated Master's Degree Option

Why choose an accelerated option?

It shortens the time to earn your master's degree. Earn graduate credit as you complete your bachelor's degree.

How it works

Up to 12 hours of credit will count toward both your bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

If you meet admission requirements, you’ll start your graduate studies in geography and geology during your senior year.

You can then finish your bachelor's degree and complete your master's degree in three semesters and one summer.

Save time and money.
