Want to strengthen your applications for professional school while also saving both time and money? An accelerated course of study might be for you.
This dual degree program involves the B.S.in Biology in the College of Arts & Sciences and an M.S. in Health Sciences (concentration in Nutrition) in The Lewis College. Highly talented and qualified students will have the opportunity to complete both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in five years. This program provides the opportunity for a select number of undergraduate students to complete all general education and pre-concentration requirements for a Biology B.S. in three and a half years. If qualified for admission into The Lewis College, students can begin taking coursework toward the M.S. in Health Sciences while completing their final year of bachelor’s work. Several graduate courses will substitute for undergraduate courses resulting in a reduction of nine (9) credit hours to complete both degrees. Admission to the graduate program in The Lewis College is contingent upon successful completion of the bachelor’s degree, on maintaining the required 3.5 GPA, on performance on the GRE, and on performance in the graduate level courses taken during the bachelor’s degree.
