McDaniel’s Five-Year B.A./M.S. programs provide the unique opportunity for qualified McDaniel students to earn both undergraduate and graduate degrees in an accelerated timeframe. McDaniel created its innovative Five-Year programs to meet the needs of our students, institutions and communities that continue to place a greater premium on academic and professional expertise. The Five-Year programs allow students to gain valuable knowledge and qualifications while saving time and money.
Current McDaniel undergraduate students seeking admission to a Five-Year program must meet with the respective program coordinator during the sophomore or junior year of their baccalaureate program. After submission of approved admission materials that fulfill the respective program’s requirements, students gain admission to Graduate and Professional Studies (GPS) at McDaniel and may register for the appropriate graduate-level courses.
