Graduate Curriculum Process

Bachelor's/Master's Pathway

For all actions - Faculty Submission and Notification Settings.

  1. For all actions, faculty must be the proposer/originator of the request due to faculty governance.
  2. Before proceeding, faculty are advised to confirm the notification settings so updates on the proposal will be received in the desired timing. (see Curriculog Information page for instructions)
  3. Submit one request per major; do not submit one proposal for multiple majors.
  4. Forms and Instructions are on the Curriculog Information page

Bachelor’s/Master’s Pathways allow academically qualified students to complete an undergraduate Bachelor’s degree and a graduate degree (typically a Master’s degree) on an accelerated timeline, graduating sooner than in traditional programs. For assistance with this process, contact Carol Hines-Cobb in the Office of Graduate Studies or Lorene Hall-Jennings in the Office of Undergraduate Studies.
