Four-Year BS/MS

Degree description

Upon completion, the student receives a BS degree from Emory College and an MS degree from the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. The degree requirements are extensive and challenging; completion of the program demands careful planning and early consultation with a departmental advisor.

Students apply for admission to the 4 year BS/MS program through their advisor early in the fall of their junior year. A minimum 3.5 GPA is required for consideration. The faculty will admit those students who have demonstrated the capacity to successfully complete the course and thesis requirements.
