Combined B.S. and M.S. Program (4+1)
This program is designed for outstanding undergraduate students and allows students to pursue a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Hospitality Management while completing their Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Hospitality Management. Students may take advantage of the 12-credit overlap in the B.S. and M.S. degree programs.
The combined B.S./M.S. program accelerates completion of the Master’s degree in a shorter time period. This program is for the Hospitality Management B.S./M.S. program only.
Admission into this program requires current enrollment in the Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management at FIU. In addition, an applicant must have completed between 75-90 credit hours of course work with a G.P.A. of 3.2 or higher.
Students enrolled in the 4+1 Program may count up to 12 credit hours of graduate courses as credits for both the B.S. and M.S. degrees. The courses must be 5000- or 6000-level School of Hospitality and Tourism Management graduate courses. For each of the graduate courses counted as credits for both B.S. and M.S. degree, a minimum grade of B is required.
The combined B.S./M.S. program has been designed to be a continuous program. However, upon completion of all the requirements of the undergraduate program, students will receive their B.S. degree.
