Degree Requirements

Combined Bachelor's + Master's degree programs allow especially strong and motivated students to complete both degrees on an accelerated timeline by sharing a pre-determined limited number of credits between the undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

The combined BS in Health Sciences + Master's Entry to Nursing Practice allows strong students with an interest in nursing to complete both degrees in 5 years, saving both time and significant tuition dollars. In order to be eligible to apply, students must be members of the Pathways Honors Program in the College of Science and Health and should begin working with their academic advisor by the end of their freshman year to ensure that their coursework is completed properly. Due to the restrictive nature of the program, students with significant transfer credit are not eligible.

Eleven courses are double-counted between the BS in Health Sciences + Master's Entry to Nursing Practice.
