Northeastern’s BS-MS PlusOne Program offers motivated students the opportunity to start earning a master’s degree while completing their undergraduate coursework. Students apply to the program in the spring of their junior year, and if accepted, you take 24 credits of graduate work in their fourth year; these courses count towards both the Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees.
Information on the approval process for PlusOne programs can be found on the Registrar’s website, and the Bouvé College website contains details on eligibility for the PlusOne program, as well the many advantages of pursuing a Master’s degree through a PlusOne program at Northeastern University.
The early intervention program is an interdisciplinary curriculum with four academic courses and two practica in early intervention sites. It replaces the standard curriculum in the 4th year of the program and requires no extra credits or expense on your part.
