May 10, 2018 – Newbury College is proud to partner with Framingham State University to increase accessibility to graduate degree programs, including eligibility for admission into Framingham State’s 4+1 programs in Biotechnology and English, as well priority admission into many of Framingham State’s 23 traditional graduate degree programs.
Newbury students who are interested in Framingham State’s 4+1 programs and meet the academic requirements during their junior year will be able to apply to these programs. This path to a Master’s degree allows Newbury students to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree from Newbury and a Master’s degree from Framingham State in only five years. Students will take graduate courses in their senior year that count towards both their Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees.
Newbury’s Vice President of Academic Affairs, Dr. Frank Sargent, said, “Newbury College's partnership with Framingham State University will strengthen our learning community while providing affordable opportunities for our students seeking to go on to graduate school.”
According to Framingham State, the University launched these accelerated programs “in response to growing demand among undergraduate students for fast-track degree options.” This quick and affordable option gives more students the ability to earn not only their undergraduate, but graduate degree as well.
Newbury students who meet the academic requirements and pre-requisites during their undergraduate degree at Newbury will receive priority admission into many of Framingham State’s 23 graduate degree programs.
