Combined BA or BS/MS in Interactive Media

The five-year bachelor's/master's degree in the interactive media program is designed for outstanding undergraduate students who are looking to accelerate the completion of their master's degree. Through this program, eligible students are able to take six interactive media graduate credits during their senior year and complete their MS degree within 14 months of receiving their bachelor's degree.

Once the undergraduate degree is verified by the Registrar, accepted students will begin a fifth year plan comprised of four semesters, including two summer terms, to earn the remaining 30 graduate credits. Courses begin during the summer session following undergraduate commencement and continue with the subsequent fall, spring, and summer.

Interested students must apply for admission to the program no later than March 15th of their junior year and all applicants are required to have:

  • An undergraduate major with a minimum 3.0 GPA
