In addition to the standard undergraduate degree requirements for English education majors, students in the Accelerated B.S. in Adolescence Education: English/M.A. in English are permitted to take 12 graduate credits during their senior year. Upon the successful completion of the normal 129 undergraduate credits required for graduation, the student will not receive the B.S. degree but will be given 12 credits of advanced standing in the M.A. program.

Note: If the student elects to not enter or complete the M.A. program, he or she will be entitled to the B.S. degree in Adolescence Education: English upon the completion of the required 129 undergraduate credits.
