Accelerated Bachelor's to Master's (ABM) Degree Requirements: 30 Credit Hours

In accordance with SACSCOC requirements, 120 unique credit hours are required in a Bachelors degree program, and at least 30 unique credit hours are required for a Masters degree program. The MSEE-ABM program combines 130 hours from the BSEE program and 30 hours from the MSEE program, exceeding the required 150 unique hours between undergraduate and graduate degree programs by 10 hours. The Jack N. Averitt College of Graduate Studies Handbook for Program Directors and Graduate Advisors permits a maximum of 9 shared credit hours between the undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Therefore, MSEE-ABM students may share a maximum of 9 credit hours of graduate level courses (5000G) in satisfying the requirements of both degree programs.

Admission Requirements

Regular


For regular admission to the Accelerated Bachelor's to the Master's of Science in Electrical Engineering (ABM-MSEE) degree program, the applicant must:

  1. Be a current Georgia Southern undergraduate student majoring in Electrical Engineering (EE).

  2. Have completed at least 25 credit hours of undergraduate coursework in EE discipline including MATH   1441, MATH   2242, PHYS   2211KPHYS   2212K, ENGR   1731, ENGR   1732, and ENGR   2332.

  3. Have a 3.0 (4.0 scale) cumulative grade point average or higher on courses in undergraduate work.

ABM programs do not allow provisional admission. ABM programs are designed for students who have demonstrated a high level of undergraduate academic performance that validates their ability to be successful graduate students. Students who do not meet the minimum requirements for regular admission may be granted admission to the program upon approval of an admissions committee consisting of at least the Department Chair and the Graduate Program director.

ABM Degree Requirements:  30 Credit Hours (Non-Thesis)


  1. A student in the ABM program will be allowed to use up to 9 credits MFGE 5000G level courses offered within the Electrical Engineering program in meeting the requirements of both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree.
  2. Maintain a cumulative graduate GPA of 3.0 (grade of “B” or better) in their graduate degree course work (including the 9 credits of graduate course work shared with the undergraduate degree).
  3. Meet all requirements for both the BSEE and M.S.E.E. degrees.
  4. An undergraduate student enrolled in graduate classes is limited to 6 credit hours of graduate coursework per semester.
  5. A minimum of 50% of courses for the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree must be taken at or above the 6000 level.
