Accelerated B.A./Master's Degree Program

Clark's Accelerated B.A./Master's Degree program gives current undergraduates the keys to earn both a bachelor's and master's degree in five years with the fifth year tuition-free*. Consider the cost of earning a master's degree in two years elsewhere and you'll see why Clark is considered a best value.

If you meet eligibility requirements, you’ll take graduate-level courses during your senior year at Clark that give you academic credit toward completion of a bachelor's degree while fulfilling some of the course requirements of the graduate degree. You'll be admitted into a graduate program below when you receive your bachelor's degree, and, typically, complete the course requirements for the master's degree in a fifth year of study. Depending on whether you started at Clark as a first-year or transfer student, you'll receive a full- or partial-tuition scholarship for the fifth year, if eligibility requirements are met.

Here are the programs from which you can choose:

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (M.S.)

Biology (M.S.)

Chemistry (M.S.)

Community Development and Planning (M.A.)

Environmental Science and Policy (M.S.)

Geographic Information Sciences (M.S.)
