4+1 Undergraduate-to-Graduate Program
The 4 + 1 program at the School of Economics effectively halves the time it takes the student to earn the master’s degree in economics.
The 4 + 1 program is an accelerated masters degree in economics, allowing UMaine undergraduate economics students to save time and money. Undergraduates apply before or during their junior year. Juniors accepted into the program may start taking graduate courses during their junior and senior years, which they can count for both their undergrad and grad degrees.
