— Students at the University of Georgia now have more than 100 opportunities to earn both a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in five years or less through a new linked-degree program.

"Double Dawgs" allows students to save time and money by earning by a master's degree in one year.

"The Double Dawgs program was created to give our ambitious students a competitive advantage after graduation while helping lower the overall cost of obtaining a graduate degree," said President Jere W. Morehead. "It also helps to meet the demand across the state-and beyond-for highly qualified workers with advanced, specialized knowledge."

There are 113 Double Dawg programs which were created by faculty members in 14 of the university's schools and colleges.
