Complete your bachelor’s degree and a master’s program in just five years!
How Does it Work?
The 4+1 tracks are a great way to earn a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in a total of five years. Students complete a traditional four-year undergraduate program in 4 years and then pursue a master’s program in the fifth (+1) year.
We encourage students interested in the 4+1 programs to begin preparing to apply as early as their freshman year on campus.
Benefits of the 4+1 programs:
- Earn an undergraduate and graduate degree in five years, saving time and money.
- Work with graduate faculty advisors early in your academic career to guide you through the programs and mentor you beyond your educational experience.
- 4+1 students are competitive applicants for public policy fellowships and research assistantships in the five Biden School research and public service centers.
