Master’s Path Program www.gradschool.mtu.edu


Master’s Path Program For Students Who Have Completed a Three-Year Bachelor’s Outside the US Some colleges and universities outside the US, particularly in the European Union, are moving to a three-year bachelor’s degree and a five-year master’s degree. After earning a threeyear degree in their home country, many students want to go abroad to pursue a high-quality master’s degree, gain international experience, and perfect their English. Michigan Tech, one of the finest technological universities in the US, provides a Master’s Path Program that allows students to pursue a master’s degree immediately, rather than requiring them to first complete a bachelor’s program in the US. Michigan Tech offers its Master’s Path Program in thirty disciplines in engineering, business and economics, natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences.

Master’s Path Curriculum

Emerging Disciplines

Students who hold a four-year bachelor’s degree take at least thirty semester credits beyond the bachelor’s for their master’s degree. Students entering the Master’s Path Program with a three-year bachelor’s degree may need to take additional undergraduate, or “bridge,” courses.

Depending on their major, Master’s Path students may concentrate their studies in any of a number of emerging disciplines. A graduate certificate is available in sustainablility; other areas of focus include biotechnology, composites, information technology, nanotechnology, remote sensing, and transportation.

The transcript of each accepted student is reviewed by the departmental graduate committee, which determines which courses the student must take complete the master’s degree. Some courses students have taken beyond the threeyear bachelor’s degree may be applied toward the master’s curriculum. Bridge courses are integrated into the Master’s Path curriculum, which is normally completed within twenty-four months. Students typically will take a mix of graduate and bridge courses during their first one or two semesters.

Student Employment Opportunities A limited number of hourly research, teaching, and service jobs are available. Students in the Master’s Path Program may take a job on campus during their first term of residence, provided it does not slow progress toward their degree. Following the successful completion of their first term, they may, at the discretion of their advisor, be eligible for a research and/or teaching stipend.

Minimum Admissions Criteria n completion of a recognized three-year degree in an appropriate area n statement of purpose, application fee (APPLY ONLINE FOR FREE), and official transcripts n three letters of reference n adequate academic achievement in pursuit of the three-year degree n GRE/general test results, if required by the department n proof of English proficiency: satisfactory scores in TOEFL (at least 550 written, 213 computer-based, or 79 Internet-based) or ILETS (a score comparable to TOEFL requirements)
