PlusOne Degrees

The PlusOne program allows students the opportunity to pursue both a bachelor’s and master’s degree consecutively in a condensed period of time.

In a PlusOne program, up to 16 credits of undergraduate work are replaced by graduate coursework, thus permitting the completion of an undergraduate degree, as well as a full master’s degree in a shorter period of time than would be possible if students pursued each degree separately through the traditional route.

In most programs, with appropriate academic progress, students receive the master’s degree one year after completing the undergraduate degree.

To apply for a PlusOne program you must be a current Northeastern undergraduate student. For more information contact your undergraduate faculty advisor.

To apply for the PlusOne program, please complete an online application using ApplyYourself. Please be aware that the deadlines are different by department.

Interested applicants should meet with their Applied Physics undergraduate major academic advisor to discuss whether this program is right for them. Then they should consult with the Engineering graduate program personnel for instructions on how to apply.

Thirty-two graduate credits are required for the PlusOne MS Bioinformatics program. Half of these (16 SH) can be taken as an undergraduate student. The other half will be taken as a graduate student. Upon graduation with a BS, students are considered full-time graduate students, enrolling in the same courses as other second year graduate students in the MS program.

If you are a Mathematics major; a Junior or Senior with a minimum QPA in Mathematics Courses of 3.7, and have a minimum overall QPA of 3.3, then we welcome your application to the PlusOne program.

Students should apply to the Math PlusOne program in their junior year. They will spend one year completing their undergraduate requirements to obtain a BS in Math, and then transition to the MS part of the BS Math/MS Applied Math program.

PlusOne students must take 8 graduate courses to complete the program at least 4 of which are to be taken after transitioning. Any graduate course taken while an undergrad may count toward fulfilling undergrad requirements as well as grad requirements.

Students can distribute graduate courses in any way. It is typical to take 2 required courses and 2 electives each of the PlusOne years. The course Math Modeling, MATH5131, counts both as a graduate elective and an undergrad capstone.

Contact your Head Faculty Advisor, (Solomon Jekel; jekel@northeastern.edu, 525 Lake) for more information.

Psychology students interested in becoming elementary school teachers (Grades 1-6) now have the opportunity to earn both a BS in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) in five years.

This program provides students with a foundation in the interdisciplinary science of psychology (including courses in human development, learning, and cognition) as well as courses directly addressing classroom teaching and issues in education.

The program consists of a combination of psychology and education courses required in the first four years, an education related co-op, as well as other NU path requirements. In the fifth year, eligible students can enter the MAT program in the College of Professional Studies.

If you are interested in this program, please contact Prof. Nancy Snyder (please call the Department of Psychology at 617.373.3076 or email: n.snyder@northeastern.edu to schedule an appointment)
