BS/MS (PlusOne)

Students sitting in a classroom in front of computers.

The PlusOne Program at Northeastern University allows motivated students to accelerate their study by applying graduate credits taken as an undergraduate to both an undergraduate and a graduate degree.

There are several reasons why the PlusOne MS Bioinformatics program might be right for you.

  • Professionals with graduate level experience are more competitive upon entering the workforce.
  • The MS in Bioinformatics provides cross-disciplinary training in biology, computer science, and data analytics.
  • In as little as 5 years, you can earn a BS in your chosen major and a MS in Bioinformatics while still having the opportunity to participate multiple co-ops.

PlusOne program options:

  • BS Behavioral Neuroscience/MS Bioinformatics
  • BS Biochemistry/MS Bioinformatics
  • BS Biology/MS Bioinformatics
  • BS Cell and Molecular Biology/MS Bioinformatics
  • BS Computer Science/MS Bioinformatics
  • BS Computer Science and Biology/MS Bioinformatics
  • BS Data Science and Biochemistry/MS Bioinformatics

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.

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