Integrated Technology Merit Fast Track
The integrated bachelor’s and master’s degree track offers an exciting opportunity for you to take up to nine credits worth of graduate level courses in your senior year of your undergraduate technology or design program. The credits earned will count toward both your bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Applying the same credits to both degree programs shortens the time it will take to finish school, and cuts cost. Graduating with two degrees will also give students an advantage as they embark on their career path. Merit Fast Track students who maintain the merit track requirements are guaranteed acceptance to the Graduate School of Technology.
Students can earn both a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in the following majors:
- Digital Multimedia Design (B.S.) and Web and Multimedia Design (M.A.)
- Computer Science (B.S.) and Information Systems (M.S.)
