Five-Year Bachelor of Science in Urban Studies / Master of Science in Non-Profit Management
Requirements: Students who have completed 90 undergraduate credits may apply for admission into the special five-year BS/MS program if they have an overall GPA of not less than 3.0 and an urban studies major GPA of not less than 3.25. Students must complete an undergraduate internship, independent study or capstone project that incorporates work with a community based organization as part of their undergraduate work. Students must meet all other requirements for admission to the Masters in Non-Profit Management. However, the GRE requirement is waived for students with an overall GPA of 3.25 or higher.
In order to complete the joint degree, in the final year of their Bachelors work, students take three graduate-level courses (9-11 credits) which would be counted toward both their undergraduate credit requirements and also toward requirements for the masters degree.
This would allow students to complete course requirements for the Bachelors and Masters degrees in five years (60 months).
