Bachelor’s/Master’s in Applied Sociology

The Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s program is designed for academically superior undergraduate students at UMBC in any major. Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s students may take up to 9 credits in their senior year that count for both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees. This reduces the number of credits required for the master’s degree. For example, students who complete the maximum of 9 graduate credits in their senior year need to complete only 21 additional credits for the master’s degree.

Students are eligible for admission into the Bachelor’s/Master’s program after they have earned 90 undergraduate credits. Plan to apply for admission by the second semester of your junior year.

Program Highlights

  • Earn an M.A. in 12-18 months
  • Lower the cost of graduate school
  • No application fee

Students can enter the program either in the fall or spring semesters, with November 15 as the deadline for spring admission and June 1 for fall admission (April 1 for best consideration). Apply here.

Application materials should be submitted to Faith Dinh, PUP 226.
