DePaul University > Academics > Undergraduate > Combined Degrees
DePaul’s combined degree program allows you to earn both your bachelor’s and master’s degrees in about five years (rather than the traditional six or more).
You’re able to do this because some of the courses you’ll take during your senior year will count toward both your bachelor’s and master’s degrees. So you'll go seamlessly from your undergraduate classes right into your graduate coursework.
Once you earn your bachelor’s degree at DePaul, you'll receive the Double Demon Scholarship. So with the scholarship – plus the graduate courses you took during your senior year – you'll save about 40 percent on tuition for your master's degree.
With both your bachelor's and master's degrees, you'll stand out among your peers with your additional educational credentials – giving you a leg up as you begin your career.
A number of undergraduate majors can be combined with graduate programs to create the combined degree that's right for you.
If you're interested in pursuing a combined degree, we recommend you discuss your options with your academic advisor, usually at the beginning of your sophomore year.
