The University of Maine offers students in every major the chance to Double Up on their degrees with combined 5 or 6 year Bachelor’s to Master’s programs (also known accelerated or  4 + 1 and 4 + 2 programs) which allow undergraduate students to use graduate coursework to meet undergraduate requirements, reducing the time and expense needed to earn a master’s degree. Students interested in Double Up programs should contact the Graduate Coordinator for the program as soon as possible to begin the academic planning process. Students should submit their application to participate in accelerated programs during their undergraduate junior year, or by the deadlines provided by their program of choice.
