[Special Academic Programs]


This program is intended for gifted and highly motivated candidates for B.A. and B.S. degrees at The University of Alabama whose objectives include master's or doctoral degrees. With a closely integrated undergraduate and undergraduate program, a qualified student begins graduate study in his or her senior year; such a program may lead to simultaneous completion of requirements for both master's and bachelor's degrees, each within its specified framework.

Any department that offers a graduate program may, with the approval of the dean of the Graduate School, participate in the University Scholars Program. A student who wishes to exercise this option will normally apply for admission in his or her sophomore year.

For more information about the University Scholars Program, consult the University of Alabama graduate catalog or the Graduate School, Box 870118, Tuscaloosa, AL 35487-0118; (205) 348-5921.
