PlusOne with MS in Engineering and Public Policy

PlusOne with MS in Engineering and Public Policy


Accelerated Master’s degrees allow students to accelerate the attainment of the master’s degree by applying graduate credits taken as an undergraduate toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees. Current students apply to enroll in the Accelerated Master’s Program.

With the PlusOne program, students attain their bachelor’s degree followed by a PlusOne year to complete the master’s degree.

Below are the eligible undergraduate majors available to pursue a PlusOne pathway with a master’s degree in Engineering and Public Policy. Also, review the Accelerated Master’s link for further details, including program policies and procedures, as well as how to Apply.
