Earn a Bachelor's and Master's in Just Five Years
Exceptional students who are committed to continuing their education through a master's degree can reduce the time it takes to complete their bachelor's and master's by entering Embry-Riddle Worldwide's 4+1 program.
The program allows students in the Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics and Bachelor of Science in Technical Management programs who qualify to enter the 4+1 program to begin a select master's program while still completing a bachelor's. By doing so, these students can earn both degrees in just five academic years.
Thus, the 4+1 program helps students enter their chosen field with a graduate degree in shorter time, saving them tuition costs and allowing them to begin flexing their earning potential that much quicker.
Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics to Master of Science in Aeronautics
The BSA-MSA 4+1 program will challenge students and develop their knowledge and understanding of concepts in aeronautical science while integrating their skills in aviation and aerospace applications. Applicants must have at least a 3.00 GPA and have demonstrated superior academic capability as described below.
Students desiring to enter this program should apply for the 4+1 program during their junior year of study. Details of the program can be obtained from their academic advisor.
Students who are accepted into the program will spend three academic years in undergraduate-level study, then during their senior year will be allowed to take up to three graduate-level courses from their selected MAS specialization to replace an equal number of elective courses in the BSA degree. MSA core courses cannot be selected as one of the three MSA courses selected.
Before selecting the three courses, students must confer with an advisor to ensure that the courses align with their selected MSA specialization. Upon completion of BSA requirements, students will be enrolled in the MSA and continue through their degree completion.
Undergraduate students taking a graduate-level course must earn a grade of B or better. If a grade of C or F is earned in any of the courses taken in lieu of the elective courses in the BSA degree, the student will be removed from the program and may continue to complete the BSA degree only.
Bachelor of Science in Technical Management to:
1. Master of Science in Information Security & Assurance
2. Master of Science in Management
3. Master of Science in Management Information Systems
Students who are accepted in the BSTM-MSISA, BSTM-MSM, or BSTM-MSMIS 4+1 programs spend three academic years in undergraduate-level study and then, during their senior year, take up to three graduate-level courses that meet the undergraduate 400-level elective and graduate program core requirements (when a grade of B or better is achieved).
Upon completion of bachelor's requirements, students will be enrolled in graduate school and can complete their degree in one year. In any graduate course taken by an undergraduate student, a grade of B or better must be earned. If a grade of C or F is earned in any of the courses taken in lieu of 400-level elective credits, the student will be removed from the program and may continue to complete the bachelor's degree only.
