Combined Bachelor’s + Master’s Degree Programs

DePaul’s combined Bachelor’s + Master’s degree programs allow you to earn both your undergraduate and graduate degrees in a condensed timeline. Discuss your options with your academic advisor as soon as you begin your undergraduate program. Take up to three graduate courses while completing your bachelor's that will count toward both your bachelor’s and master’s degrees, saving you time and money, moving you seamlessly from your undergraduate program to your graduate degree. Combined degrees are open to all current DePaul undergraduate students interested in graduate study and most undergraduate majors can be combined with graduate degrees across colleges.


    SCPS also offers an alternative path to link a graduate program to your undergraduate studies with graduate degrees in Applied Professional Studies, Applied Technology and Educating Adults. SCPS Graduate Studies advisors can work with you to plan a smooth transition from SCPS undergraduate programs to master's degrees that feature individualized learning plans, credit for experiential learning and independent study options.
