Combined Degree Programs

DePaul’s combined bachelor’s + master’s degree programs allow you to earn both your undergraduate and graduate degrees in as few as five years (rather than the traditional six or more).

The courses you’ll take during your senior year will count toward both your bachelor’s and master’s degree, saving you time and money, moving you seamlessly from your undergraduate classes right into your graduate coursework.

Create the combined degree program that's right for you

Many LAS combined degrees are open to all current DePaul undergraduate students interested in graduate study. Others are open only to designated undergraduate majors.

Students interested in any of the LAS combined programs apply through the Graduate Admission Office in their junior year, and if accepted, take up to three graduate courses in their senior year. Once students earn their bachelor’s degree from DePaul, they matriculate as a graduate student and complete the remaining required courses for the master’s degree.
