4+1 Accelerated Master’s Degree in Environmental Engineering
In this accelerated program, students complete a Bachelor of Science degree as well as a Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering with a concentration in Environmental Engineering within a five-year time frame. The BS/MS degrees are identical to the individual BS and MS degrees offered by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. This combined five-year program enables students to obtain these degrees in less time than would be required when pursuing them independently, and can help students boost their salary when entering the workforce.
The 4+1 year BS/MS program in Civil Engineering with a concentration in Environmental Engineering is open to all undergraduate students at UMass Amherst who are enrolled as civil engineering majors. Application is made in the spring of junior year and admission is typically offered to students with GPAs in the top 33 percent of their class.
