Lehigh undergrads: Register now for Nov. 10 information session to learn how the Rossin College’s Bachelor's to Master's Accelerated Program can save you time and money on advanced studies in engineering

Interested in speeding up your academic pace and saving some money on a master’s degree in the process? 

Through the Rossin College’s Bachelor's to Master's Accelerated Program, eligible Lehigh undergraduates can leverage selected credits taken during undergrad toward a master’s degree and take graduate courses that are included in undergraduate tuition, which can add up to significant savings. The program also makes it possible to complete a master’s degree in one additional year of study at Lehigh. 

BS-to-MS tracks (also referred to as “4+1” programs) can be a good fit for many STEM-minded students, says Sabrina Jedlicka, the Rossin College’s associate dean for academic affairs and an associate professor of bioengineering and materials science and engineering.

“Maybe you already know that your chosen career requires a master’s degree, or perhaps you’ve identified areas beyond your current engineering or other STEM major that you’d like to explore,” Jedlicka says. “Setting yourself on course toward an advanced degree while you are still an undergrad allows you to achieve that goal in the most efficient, cost-effective way possible.” 

For Accelerated BS-Master’s Program participants like chemical engineer Kelby Anderson ’22, who is currently pursuing a master’s degree in environmental engineering, the extra year at Lehigh also provides more time to engage in experiential learning opportunities and other experiences impacted by the pandemic. Read more about Kelby’s experience here.  

Interested in hearing more? Attend a virtual information session, led by Jedlicka, on November 10 to learn about program requirements and how you can continue in your undergraduate discipline, change fields, or explore opportunities to build professional credentials in fields including energy, healthcare systems, technical entrepreneurship, structural engineering, or data science.
