4+1 Master's

This page reflects enrollment in three 4+1 Bachelor/Master's programs:

  • BS/MS in Cancer Biology and Translational Oncology
  • BA/MA in English
  • BS/MS in Environmental Sciences

These programs are open only to Emory undergraduates, who enroll in some graduate work during their senior undergraduate year, and then enroll in the Laney Graduate School for a "+1" year, and graduate with a Master's degree.  The table below reflects their enrollment in the Laney Graduate School (i.e., their "+1" year enrollment), and their degrees.

Percentages are rounded to whole numbers and do not always add to 100. “Five Year Average” includes data from 2013-14 through 2017-18. These figures represent 4+1 Master's students.
