Combined Advanced Degree Program

A Combined Advanced Degree Program (CADP), also known as a "4+1" program allows highly motivated students to earn both their Bachelors Degree and a Masters Degree in just five years instead of the traditional six years.

Here's how this program works.

Students begin taking graduate courses in their senior year accelerating their graduate studies while still at the undergraduate level and while paying undergraduate tuition and fees. These dual degree programs will allow Computer Science or Computing and Informatics majors to quickly obtain advanced post-baccalaureate computer science training in preparation for careers in education, industry, research, business and government.

Currently, we offer five such programs:

 - BS Computer Science + MS Computer Science
 - BS Computer Science + MS Data Science
 - BS Computer Science + MS Bioinformatics
 
 - BA Computing and Informatics + MS Cybersecurity
 - BA Computing and Informatics + MS Bioinformatics
