The Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s program in Management of Aging Services is designed for academically superior undergraduate students at UMBC in any major. Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s students may take up to 9 credits in their senior year that count for both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees. This reduces the number of credits required for the master’s degree.
Students are eligible for admission into the Bachelor’s/Master’s program after they have earned 90 undergraduate credits. Plan to apply for admission by the second semester of your junior year.
During their senior year, accelerated program students MUST apply for graduation to receive their bachelor’s degree, and also MUST apply for admission to the Graduate School. The MAGS program will recommend admission to the Graduate School for any student who successfully completes the graduate level courses with a “B” or better. To be admitted to the Graduate School a student must have an overall GPA of 3.0 or above.
- Earn an M.A. in 12-18 months
- Lower the cost of graduate school
- No application fee
Students can enter the program either in the fall or spring semesters, with November 15 as the deadline for spring admission and June 1 for fall admission. Interested students should complete the Accelerated BA/MA application form found here:
