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.
Accelerated options are available in the following master's degree programs:
How to Apply
Contact the program coordinator of the program you are interested in, and then apply online.
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).
