Joint Undergraduate-Masters Program (JUMP, or 5-Year BS/MS)

Students may obtain both a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (ACS-certified) and a Master of Science in Chemistry (MS Degree) concurrently. Interested students can apply prior to completion of 75 hours of undergraduate credits. The Integrated Master's/Bachelor's program is an exciting opportunity for students who excel academically. Students participating in the Joint BS/MS program will be admitted to Graduate Studies and Research at the beginning of the semester in which they complete the total number of credit hours required for the undergraduate degree in chemistry. For more information about JUMP, please contact Dr. Bangbo Yan.

A Plan of Study is available for JUMP students. For those transferring with a two-year degree, it may be possible to complete the BS and MS within three years. See the department for more information.
