Accelerated Bachelor's/Master's Program

Jump-Start Your Career and Apply Today

Excited to pursue a career in public health? Think that graduate school is in your future? Then consider Pitt Public Health’s accelerated bachelor’s/master’s program — or the 3+2 program, for short.

If you’re a motivated student who’s completed the appropriate undergraduate coursework, the accelerated bachelor’s/master’s program allows you to complete both degrees in a total of five years, saving up to a full year of time and undergraduate tuition.

How it works

Qualified Pitt undergraduates apply in their third year and enroll in graduate classes in their fourth year. As they begin master’s degree studies, students simultaneously satisfy remaining undergraduate requirements to graduate on time with their bachelor’s degree at the end of their fourth year.

Students in the accelerated bachelor’s/master’s program fully participate in the graduate school experience and prepare themselves for their future career:
  • Develop new skills with advanced coursework
  • Gain real-world experience through a required practicum or internship
  • Work with experienced researchers on basic and applied research problems

Though graduate school is challenging, this accelerated program allows motivated students to obtain a graduate degree and career path — all while saving up to one year’s worth of tuition!
