BS-MS Environmental Sciences

The Accelerated Master’s Degree Option, created for our top students, enables undergraduates to remain at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) Boston for a graduate degree. Students eligible for the Accelerated Masters of Science in Environmental Science apply in their junior year and are offered admission to the Environmental Sciences Masters of Science program "early" (conditional). The requirements for the bachelor’s and master’s degrees remain unchanged. Students are able to complete both degrees within 5 years of full-time enrollment (15 credits per semester minimum).
