Cincinnati Smart Campaign

Cincinnati offers several opportunities for a student to earn both a bachelor and graduate degree seamlessly—a great way to save time and make an advanced degree more accessible and affordable. The structure of these opportunities will vary, but many require four years of coursework, resulting in a bachelor degree, followed by one year of graduate courses. This structure is referred to as a 4+1 program.

  • Bachelor degree from the College of Arts & Sciences and Juris Doctorate from the College of Law
  • Six total years—first three years are exclusively focused on the undergraduate degree. Fourth year is first year of law school, which simultaneously completes the bachelor degree
  • Bachelor of engineering degree plus a master’s degree in business, education, or engineering
  • Students admitted to Pre-Pharmacy via the College of Arts & Sciences and who have a 3.50 GPA and a 26 ACT/ 1240 SAT will be provided with program details if they qualify
