Bachelor’s / Master’s Program

autumnThe Bachelor’s / Master’s Program is designed to enable exceptionally well-qualified  and highly motivated AMS undergraduates to fulfill the requirements for both degrees within five years.  The program is selective, with high standards for admission, because of the outstanding achievement and commitment required to complete it on schedule. Alternatively, students interested in the Master’s degree may pursue the traditional path of completing the Bachelor’s degree before beginning graduate study.


Interested students are encouraged to apply in the fall semester of their junior year, but must apply no later than November 1 of their senior year.
