Whether you’re looking to launch your career, gain additional skills, or find a new path in the industry, the 4+1 B.S./M.S. can work for you. Our concentration is designed for students for advertising or public relations majors at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Students now have the opportunity to turn their bachelor’s degree into a master’s degree with just one additional year of coursework beyond their undergraduate program.
Admission to the 4+1 Master’s Concentration
Juniors may apply to be a dual-track undergraduate and graduate student. If accepted into the graduate school and the program, students can take graduate-level courses in their last 30 hours of undergraduate coursework.
Seniors who have not applied to the program yet may request to take coursework for graduate credit. Students must still apply to the program and be accepted by both the graduate school and the ADPR graduate admissions committee.
Recent Graduates who were advertising or public relations majors and who graduated in the past three years may apply.
Applicants must meet UT Graduate School academic requirements and apply online to the Office of Graduate Admissions.
