Accelerated Master's Programs

The accelerated master’s degree programs will enable a student to complete both a B.S. and M.S. degree in as little as 5 years. Up to 12 credits applied toward the B.S. program may be used to satisfy graduate credit requirements. See individual programs for the number of credits allowed by the program.  More information is also available at the SD Mines Online Catalog.

Course Requirements

Courses must be taken at the 400/500/600 level. Courses taken at the 400 level are subject to the other requirements listed in the catalog. Only courses taken at SD Mines are eligible for dual credit.  No transferred courses will be allowed to count toward the accelerated MS degree.

An additional 12 semester hours of graduate level credits taken as an undergraduate and not used to fulfill requirements for the undergraduate degree may be used toward a graduate degree (courses must be approved by the student’s graduate student advisory committee or advisor).
