Curriculum

Students admitted to this program will start taking graduate level classes during their senior year. The graduate courses cannot be double-counted for both the BA/BS and the MS. For this reason, students interested in the 4+1 program should begin planning early to ensure that they have sufficient room in their schedules to accommodate the 11 graduate credits in senior year.

Undergraduate students will be required to work closely with their undergraduate CLA advisers and SPH graduate advisers to make sure that the coursework required for the bachelor’s degree and MS is completed at the appropriate time.
