Combined BS/MS

The Department of Civil Engineering offers combined bachelor’s/master’s degrees. For students who are admitted to this program, the two degrees typically require five years total to complete. For these students, there is an automatic tuition waiver of 50% after the first eight semesters of undergraduate work.

One program combines a B.S. in Civil Engineering with a Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.) in Civil Engineering. The other option combines a B.S. in Civil Engineering with a Master of Science in Engineering Management (M.S.E.M.).  Applications for the M.S.E.M. Program must be submitted through the M.S.E.M. website at engineering.jhu.edu/msem.

Students who enroll in the combined Bachelor’s/Master’s program or pursue a master’s degree after having earned a the B.S. in Civil Engineering at Hopkins may double-count two advanced courses (400-level or higher) towards both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees with the permission of the master’s faculty advisor. More detail on double-counting courses can be found here.

Applications to the combined Bachelor’s/Master’s programs should be submitted no later than November 30th of the senior year. Students are encouraged to discuss interest in the combined program with their advisor during the junior year to make sure they are well positioned to gain maximum benefit from the program. Note that only two letters of recommendation are required from current JHU undergraduates applying to this program, and GRE/TOEFL scores are not required for these students.
