B.S./M.S. Accelerated Degree in Physics
The Bachelor's/Master's (B.S./M.S.) Accelerated Degree provides the academically qualified students with the opportunity to earn both a B.S. and an M.S. degree (two diplomas are awarded) in five years, the time normally required to finish the co-op option B.S. degree alone.
This is an academically demanding program, but there are allowances built in to enable the program to be completed in the time allotted.
Exceptional students with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 and who are enrolled in the five-year co-op option program are eligible for the B.S./M.S. program. Students formally apply to the program after they have completed 90 credits but before they have completed 120 credits. Students are strongly encouraged to begin planning for the program as early as their freshman year. Students who have more than 120 credits are not eligible.
Students enrolled in the B.S./M.S. accelerated degree program must complete all undergraduate quarter credits for the B.S. degree and at least 45 graduate quarter credits for the M.S. degree. All graduate departmental requirements must be satisfied in full. Students in the B.S./M.S. program must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 in their undergraduate and graduate coursework to remain in the program.
