AU offers qualified students the opportunity to earn both undergraduate and graduate degrees, in a continuous plan of study, through accelerated bachelor’s/master’s programs.
The DHS combined bachelor’s/master’s program enables students who wish to continue their studies at the next academic level to earn a bachelor’s degree in Health Promotion and an MS in Health Promotion Management in 5-years.
Health Promotion majors with a cumulative 3.0 GPA or higher will be eligible to apply after they have earned 75 academic credits and before completing 90 credits. Students accepted in the combined bachelor's / master's program may share up to 12 credit hours of approved graduate-level coursework to satisfy the requirements of both degrees. Students are not required to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) for acceptance in the program.
