Earn a Bachelor's and a Master's Degree in Just Five Years

If you are a Binghamton undergraduate and you plan to get a master's degree, consider speeding up your education by enrolling in one of Binghamton University's Accelerated Degree Programs. You can complete your bachelor's degree and a focused master's program in a total of five years.


You finish the coursework for your bachelor's degree in a little over three years. In your fourth year, you combine bachelor's- and master's-level courses. In your fifth year, you are admitted to the Graduate School and focus solely on graduate work. Students in these programs typically complete a capstone project instead of a master's thesis.


By choosing an Accelerated Degree, you get all the benefits of Binghamton's world-class graduate school at a SUNY price. And there's no penalty if you change your major or opt out of the Accelerated Degree program.

SAVE TIME - earn your bachelor's and master's degrees in less time than it takes for two separate degrees.

SAVE MONEY - in your fourth year you still pay undergraduate tuition, even though you take graduate courses. You'll spend less time in school-five years instead of six-and pay less tuition. You'll hit the job market sooner, ready to earn a higher salary with your master's degree.
