Coterminal Bachelor's and Master's Degrees

[Updated December 1, 2016 - added link to Advice document]

Some Symbolic Systems undergraduates apply to study for a Master's Degree at Stanford while majoring in Symbolic Systems as an undergraduate. An undergraduate who is admitted to a regular Mastrer's Degree program (M.S. or M.A.) can generally pursue both the B.S. degree in Symbolic Systems and the Master's Degree simultaneously. The Bachelor's Degree can be conferred in any quarter following the one in which a student is admitted to the Master's program, up to and including the quarter in which the Master's Degree is conferred. This is known as pursuing "Coterminal Bachelor's and Master's Degrees" and students enrolled in the two degree programs are known informally as "coterms". Symbolic Systems offers its own M.S. program, which is available to coterms subject to admission. Other Master's programs may also be pursued coterminally with a B.S. in Symbolic Systems, again subject to admission, e.g. Biomedical Informatics, Communication, Computer Science, Education, Linguistics, Management Science and Engineering, Philosophy, and Psychology.
