Combined Degree Program
UF has developed a program for undergraduate students that allows those who qualify academically to obtain both a bachelor’s and master’s degree. Minimum qualifications for many programs include a 3.2 GPA and a competitive GRE score for admission to graduate school.
Combined degree programs allow you to get a head start on your graduate education by taking graduate courses throughout the junior and senior undergraduate years. In most programs, 12 credit hours of graduate work will also count toward an undergraduate degree, thus reducing the time it takes to get both degrees.
There are a number of financial considerations you should keep in mind. You are responsible for paying the difference between undergraduate and graduate tuition. Florida Prepaid College Tuition Program participants will receive funding for the first 120 credit hours. The program will fund graduate courses taken toward the undergraduate degree at the undergraduate level. Financial aid may be available to assist with the graduate degree portion of the program.
The Department of Urban and Regional Planning offers a wide range of combined degree programs for those majoring in Sustainability & the Built Environment, Political Science, Forestry, and more.
