PlusOne Programs

For current students only.

Northeastern’s PlusOne Program offers motivated students the opportunity to start earning a master’s degree while completing their undergraduate coursework. You can take four to five graduate courses (max. 16 credits) as part of your undergraduate degree and also count these towards your master’s. This shortens the completion time for a master’s degree to (usually) one additional year. Bouvé offers 13 PlusOne Pathways from which to choose.

Please refer to the the Registrar’s PlusOne Curriculum page for the most current information.

Starting as early as their sophomore year, interested students should begin speaking with their academic advisor to evaluate options and start planning.

How to apply

Work with your primary undergraduate academic advisor to verify that you have room for four graduate courses in your major and/or general electives.

Complete Parts 1 and 2 of the PlusOne Transition to Master’s Form with your primary undergraduate academic advisor.  This form is used to confirm that students are eligible to apply to the graduate program via the PlusOne pathway; it does not guarantee admission.

Students must have a minimum overall 3.000 GPA and must have at least 64 semester-hours of earned or earned and in-progress credits before they are eligible to apply.
