University Scholars

The University Scholars opportunity offers particularly gifted and highly motivated students the option of integrating their undergraduate and graduate courses of study in a single continuous path culminating in both a baccalaureate degree (in the target language) and a master's degree. The total number of hours for the combined option may be as many as 12 less than the total required for the bachelor's and the master's degrees separately. The requirements for the bachelor's degree are unaffected. 
Application to the University Scholars program should be submitted at the end of the student's junior year. Applicants should have completed at least 90 credit hours of work toward the bachelor's degree, or be eligible for senior standing in the semester they are admitted to the University Scholars. The the undergraduate major must be in the language, and the undergraduate grade point average must be at least a 3.50 in the applicant's major field and 3.20 overall. Applicants must submit both a Graduate School application and a University Scholars form with all requested signatures.
