SF State Scholars Program expansion

The Division of Graduate Studies is pleased to announce the expansion of the SF State Scholars program. The SF State Scholars program is a “blended” bachelor’s and master’s degree program that provides undergraduate students an accelerated pathway to a graduate degree.

Students in this program pursue a bachelor’s and master’s degree simultaneously. This program allows students to earn graduate credit while in their junior and/or senior year, reducing the number of semesters required for completion of a master’s degree. The program offers students additional career prospects, intellectual growth and the opportunity to deepen skills and research competencies. In addition, scholar students will receive a unique form of mentorship that is not often expected at a large urban university.

  • Accountancy: B.S. in Business Administration: Concentration in Accounting + M.S. in Accountancy
