Harpur College 4+1 Degree Programs

5 Years. 2 Degrees. Finish Faster.

Complete a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in five years.

Fast, Smart, Affordable, Convenient

Typically, earning a master's degree takes two years. But with Binghamton University's 4+1 degree programs, you can earn your master's degree with just one extra year of classes. You'll finish both your bachelor's degree and your master's degree in a total of five years.

By choosing a 4+1 degree program, you'll save a full year of tuition dollars. Plus, you'll pay undergraduate tuition rates for your graduate classes during your fourth (senior) year.

How does it work?

You complete most of the coursework for your bachelor's degree in your first three years. In your fourth year, you take both bachelor's- and master's-level courses, graduate with your bachelor's degree and formally apply to the Graduate School. In your fifth year, you are admitted to the Graduate School and focus solely on graduate coursework.
