Accelerated Degree Option
B.S and M.S. Community Health - Undergraduate students may be eligible to register for up to four, 500-level courses that they can use towards their M.S. degree. This is the equivalent of 1 semester of coursework at the graduate level. Once admitted to the MS Community Health program, those 12 credit hours of 500 level graduate courses can be applied toward their graduate degree requirements. Students must have earned at least a 3.0 in any course to be counted toward both degrees. These credit hours can count both toward their 120 credit hours needed for their undergraduate degree and the 48 credit hours needed for their graduate MS Community Health degree. Contact Dr. Kelly Bonnar for more information about this accelerated degree option.
