Accelerated Chemistry BS-MS Non-Thesis

The BS-MS accelerated degree program allows undergraduate students in the Chemistry to begin coursework towards the non-thesis option of the Master of Science in Chemistry during their senior year at Texas A&M University-Commerce. Students can earn a B.S. and M.S. degree in five years upon completion of degree requirements for both degrees. For this accelerated program, 6 credits of graduate courses can be applied to the undergraduate degree. Students must apply to the accelerated program by the end of their junior year after having completed at least 90 hours of undergraduate courses and a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher. Successful completion of the comprehensive exams is required of all students to receive the Master of Science degree in Chemistry-Option II Non-Thesis.
