Integrated Bachelor's/Master's Program
The integrated Bachelor of Science and Master of Science program in the T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics allows a limited number of high achieving, undergraduate Sanford School majors to apply to the MS in the Family & Human Development program. Students can apply after completing 75 credit hours (Junior standing) in their undergraduate program.
Once accepted, undergraduate students begin to take graduate courses after finishing 90 credit hours (Senior standing). Students take six hours of graduate courses while finishing their Bachelors; the remainder of the Master degree requirements are completed after earning their undergraduate degree. This potentially allows students to complete their Masters a semester early. Students enrolled in this program are considered undergraduates until they have completed all of the requirements for their Bachelor degree.
- Students in the program will not be eligible for graduate perquisites such as teaching/research assistantships, related health insurance for graduate students, graduate level financial aid, or graduate award programs until the undergraduate degree is completed and the undergraduate degree has been posted. After the undergraduate degree is posted, however, students can be awarded these perquisites.
