We have designed the combined BIS/MS programs to offer exceptional part-time students BIS the opportunity to continue their education in one of two Villanova graduate programs - the M.S. in HRD or the M.S. in Software Engineering. If interested, you are encouraged to contact your Part-Time Studies academic advisor. If you are qualified, you will need to complete the required formal notification process leading to your admission into the graduate program. You should begin this process prior to the start of your senior year. As a BIS/MS student, you will either earn your M.S. in HRD in conjunction with your BIS General or Leadership Studies degree or your M.S. in Software Engineering in conjunction with your BIS in Information Systems in an abbreviated timeframe.
