Earn Units Toward Your Master's While Completing Your BA

Launched in Fall 2016, CIIS offers an accelerated BA and MA/MFA degree track. This track offers admitted students the opportunity to simultaneously complete units toward their BA and MA/MFA degree in one of five graduate degree programs: 

Students will take 3 units each semester (for three semesters) that will count for the undergraduate and graduate degree. Since these units will be paid for as part of the full-time undergraduate tuition, students can save more than $9,800 toward the cost of their graduate degree

As an accelerated student, you may also shorten the time to graduation or lessen your course load. You'll meet with your BA and MA/MFA advisor every semester to make sure you stay on track!
