Hilbert College introduces four new programs for five-year degrees

HAMBURG — Hilbert College has introduced four new programs to earn a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in five years. The college’s new 4-plus-1 programs give students the option of a combined program, which will save time and money to earn a master’s degree. Students may enroll in the combined programs, beginning this fall.

These new combined programs include a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice/Master of Science degree in criminal justice administration; a Bachelor of Science degree in forensic science/Master of Science degree in criminal justice administration; a Bachelor of Science degree in human services/master of public administration: health administration and a Bachelor of Science degree in political science/master of public administration.

All four programs allow students to finish their Bachelor of Science degree and begin work on the corresponding master’s degree. Students may begin taking graduate courses during their final year(s) of undergraduate study and any graduate course taken fulfills the requirements of both the bachelor’s and the master’s degrees.

Students will have automatic admission into the respective master’s program, as long as academic requirements are met. As a result of beginning graduate courses during the undergraduate program, students will complete the master’s degree in a shorter period of time.

The combined program allows students to finish both degrees in five years, saving up to two semesters of graduate school.
