​The combined Bachelor's/Master's degree programs allow students to complete 12 graduate credit hours while still undergraduates. These 12 graduate credit hours will count toward both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

The Biological Sciences (BS) offers two options:

  • Biological Sciences (BS)/Biological Sciences (MS)
  • Biological Sciences (BS)/Secondary Education Biology (MED)

Biological Sciences (BS)/Biological Sciences (MS)

Students apply to this program in spring of their junior year; interested students should meet with the Graduate Program Director of the program.  Students accepted into this program take a maximum of twelve graduate credit hours as three courses in their senior year; these graduate courses apply toward both undergraduate and graduate Biological Sciences requirements. 

Biological Sciences (BS)/Secondary Education Biology (MEd)

This combined degree program of the College of Science and Health  and the College of Education was collaboratively developed, and is governed and taught by faculty from these units. A full description of the Program can be found on the College of Education website in the graduate course catalog.
