Combined BS/MS Degree in Biology (2020)
The Biology Department offers exceptional Tufts undergraduate Biology majors the option of earning a combined Bachelor of Science and Master of Science (BS–MS) degree in five years. This program allows students to finish the 120-hour undergraduate degree and the 30-hour master degree in five years.
Completing the BS/MS requires 8 semesters of full-time undergraduate residency, and 2 semesters of full-time graduate residency. The 2-semester graduate residency requirement cannot be reduced. Graduate residency can only begin after the undergraduate degree is completed (34 course credits + completed undergraduate residency).

During the early months of their junior year, students are required to contact their academic adviser and arrange a meeting with Dr. George Ellmore, in person, to facilitate program planning.
