Coterminal Degree Programs
The coterminal degree program allows you to simultaneously pursue a master's degree while completing your bachelor's degree(s) in the same or a different department.
To apply for admission to a coterminal master’s degree program, you must complete 120 undergraduate units and have a strong academic record. You must apply no later than the quarter prior to the expected completion of your undergraduate degree. Full-time enrollment during Summer Quarters, as well as allowable undergraduate transfer credit, are counted towards quarters of undergraduate study. If you wish to apply for a master's program after these deadlines, you must apply through the regular graduate admissions process.
