The College of Arts and Science (CAS) and the Graduate School of Arts and Science (GSAS), offer students in participating departments the opportunity to earn both a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in a shorter period of time and at a cheaper rate. Ideally, students in this accelerated program can complete both degrees in five years. The Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies is a participant in this program.
A College of Arts and Science brochure outlining general curriculum, admissions, scholarship and financial aid, and advising of this accelerated degree program can be obtained from the College Advising Center, Silver 905. This information can also be found on the CAS Accelerated Bachelor's/Master's Program website. As noted in the brochure, students may apply to the program “once they have completed a minimum of 48 credits toward the bachelor’s degree, but not more than 96 credits or six semesters, whichever comes first.
Near Eastern Studies:
