Earn an Undergraduate and Graduate Degree in Five Years

Senior undergraduate students in the Rowland School of Business have the option to take two core classes from one of our master's programs, enabling them to earn a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree from the school in as little as five years. This is a valuable opportunity for students interested in continuing their education to get a jump-start on their graduate studies.

Enrollment and completion criteria

  • Point Park students may apply for the Early Start Master's Program at any point during their undergraduate studies.
  • If accepted into the program, students must be a senior undergraduate student with 3.00 or higher GPA to start taking their master's program classes.
  • Apply online now.
  • Applicants should also submit a current resume and a 500-word statement of purpose which addresses how your professional experience and career goals relate to graduate study. Letters of recommendation are not required, and you do not need to send your Point Park transcript - the Office of Graduate and Online Admissions will pull that for you.
