Bachelor Plus Master in Communication

Earn both your bachelor's degree and master's degree at the University of Dayton through one streamlined program.

Accelerated Pace

With UD's Bachelor's Plus Master's (BPM) program, you can earn your bachelor's degree and a master's degree at an accelerated pace - completing your master's degree within just one year of earning your bachelor's degree.

You can enroll in the BPM program as early as your junior year. Once declared, you will take one graduate class per semester during your junior year and then two classes per semester until graduation. In order to receive the master’s degree within one year, you would need to complete 18 graduate credits while completing your undergraduate program. The good news is that six credits of graduate classes can double count towards your undergraduate requirement.

Discounted Graduate Tuition

You'll also receive a discounted rate once you've completed your bachelor's degree, saving 30% or more per credit hour on your graduate tuition. That's less than half the cost of an undergraduate semester hour.
