Accelerated and Dual Degree Programs

Dallas Baptist University offers Accelerated and Dual Degree Programs:

  • Accelerated Bachelor's and Master's Degrees
  • Dual Master's Degrees

The Accelerated Bachelor's and Master's Degree Programs at DBU provide a means for highly motivated individuals with clearly defined career goals to attain knowledge and skills from both undergraduate and master’s degrees in a single accelerated process.  Combining the degrees provides a faster track to graduation, proves to be more cost effective, and gives the student the opportunity to enter the workforce sooner with a competitive advantage.

Permission to Pursue an Accelerated Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree Program

 

B.A., B.A.S., or B.S. Program:

Students wishing to enter an accelerated program should file a Statement of Commitment with their academic advisor. Permission to pursue the program will be considered based on the following criteria:

  • Completion of 75 semester hours (see individual degree requirements) with a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 at the time of filing a Statement of Commitment.  The 3.0 GPA criteria must be maintained to continue in the program.
  • The Statement of Commitment must be approved and signed by both the undergraduate advisor and the Master’s program director.  At that time, a new degree plan must be completed, approved, and signed by both the undergraduate advisor and the Master’s program director. 
  • At the completion of 90 semester hours (to include 12 institutional hours with a 3.0 GPA) students must apply for admission to the Master’s program.  Students pursuing the B.B.A. Accounting/M.B.A. Accounting must apply at the completion of 96 hours.    
  • Upon acceptance into the Master’s program, students may take 5000 or 6000 level courses as prescribed by their degree plan. 

B.B.S. in Management or B.B.S. in Business Administration Programs:

Students wishing to enter an accelerated program should file a Statement of Commitment with their academic advisor. Permission to pursue the program will be considered based on the following criteria:

  • A minimum overall Grade Point Average of 3.0, with a minimum Grade Point Average of 3.0 in the upper-level coursework comprising my major.
  • Successful completion of CAED 3301.
  • The Statement of Commitment must be approved signed by both my undergraduate advisor and graduate program director. At that time, a new degree plan must be completed, approved, and signed by both the undergraduate advisor and the Master’s program director.

  • Upon acceptance into the Master’s program, students may take 5000 or 6000 level courses as prescribed by their degree plan.

Note:  Permission to pursue an accelerated Bachelor’s and Master’s degree program does not guarantee admission to the Master’s program.  All requirements for admission to the Master’s program must be met. Students may not enroll in 5000 or 6000 level courses prior to admission to the Master’s program. 

 

Retention in and Graduation from the Program

Students must fulfill the following conditions to continue enrollment and graduate from an accelerated Bachelor’s and Master’s degree program:

  • Students must maintain an institutional GPA of 3.0 at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and at the undergraduate level, an institutional GPA of 3.0 in coursework comprising the major or in all teacher certification coursework.     
  • A minimum 3.0 GPA is required to graduate with a master’s degree.
  • Students must be advised by both their undergraduate advisor and their graduate program director/advisor prior to enrollment each semester.
  • Transfer students must meet the residency requirement for the bachelor’s degree of a minimum of 30 hours. Shared courses at the graduate level are considered to be part of the undergraduate residency requirement. They also apply toward the undergraduate requirements of 42 upper-level credit hours and 30 of the last 36 credit hours in residence at Dallas Baptist University.
  • If the student decides not to complete the Accelerated Bachelor’s and Master’s degree program, he/she must work with the undergraduate advisor in order to meet the degree requirements for the non-accelerated Bachelor’s degree in order to graduate.

Note:  Church Membership Requirement (for Admission into the Ph.D. in Leadership Studies’ Ministry Concentration, Master’s Ministry Degrees, and Advanced Ministry Certificate Programs): Within the last 12 months the applicant must have been an active member of a Christian church that holds Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and who holds solely the Old Testament and the New Testament as sacred Scripture.

Through Dallas Baptist University's Dual Master's Degree programs, students may work simultaneously toward two degrees. In most cases, a dual degree student can complete both degrees with only one additional year of study. Students successfully completing the program earn two degrees upon graduation.

A dual degree provides the flexibility to study additional areas of interest, which can then broaden career possibilities and increase the competitive edge in today's economy for the successful student.

In order to pursue a Dual Master's Degree program, the applicant must apply to, meet the existing admission requirements for, and be accepted into each of the master's degrees which comprise the dual degree program.

Candidates for dual degrees should consult with an advisor in their college or school of interest.
