Five-year, Dual-degree Programs on the Rise

Most of our graduate students begin their graduate degree in the traditional sense with some gap of time between their undergraduate and graduate work.  Now, that “gap” can be short (~1-2 years) or long (20+ years)—both paths are quite common here at Hood College.  However, there is rising interest in dual-degree programs, which skip the “gap” between degrees.  Thus, do not be surprised if you’re sitting next to a senior in a given class, who is taking that same class as part of the initial requirements of their graduate degree.
