Learning Outcomes

  • Offers highly qualified UCCS sociology majors the opportunity of pursuing the Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Sociology and Masters of Arts (MA) in Sociology concurrently.
  • Allows for up to 9 credit hours to be used for both the BA and MA.

General Requirements

  • The requirements for the Accelerated program are equivalent to the aggregate of the BA and MA degrees, except that up to 9 credit hours can be applied toward both the BA and MA requirement.
  • Students admitted to the Accelerated degree program will maintain their undergraduate standing until the mid-program review, which will determine the student’s eligibility to continue in the Accelerated degree program. This review will be conducted the semester in which the student will complete the BA requirements (including 120 credit hours).
  • A student will be considered eligible to continue upon meeting the following minimum standards and criteria: completion of the requirements for a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, and maintenance of a minimum cumulative overall GPA of 3.25 and Sociology GPA of 3.50.

Program Requirements

  • Once admitted into the Accelerated BA/MA program (while an undergraduate student), accelerated students complete three graduate courses with a minimum grade of 3.25 in each course. They must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.25 in all coursework and in coursework applied to their major.
  • After completion on the 9 graduate credits (which count toward both their BA and MA) and 111 undergraduate credits, students will be considered graduate students. They must meet all master’s degree requirements except for the three courses (9 credits) they completed as undergraduates.
  • If students take a combined 4000/5000 level course at the 4000 level, they cannot take the same combined course at the 5000 level.
