A six-credit internship or course work is completed during the summer at Husson University between fourth and fifth years. In the fifth year, students take graduate course work on the Husson campus or at the Husson South Portland Center.

The two courses taken at Unity College must be from the list of designated 4000- level courses. The student must meet the general requirements in the 4000-level course and complete a project that represents beginning graduate level work. The specific project requirements will be established by the course instructor and will include at a minimum a research paper, presentation, or similar product of substance and quality.

Unity College students interested in completing a master’s degree in this five-year program will apply for admission to either the Husson University Masters in Business Administration program or the MS in Criminal Justice Administration program in the second semester of their junior year. The admission requirements include:

A completed application, two letters of recommendation, and submission of transcripts (with student consent) for all undergraduate course work completed to date. It is expected that candidates will have an undergraduate GPA of a 3.0 or better. Exceptions to this standard may be made on a case-by-case-basis. Initial acceptance into the graduate program will be provisional.

Students must complete the two graduate level courses in their senior year with grades of B or better and maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 or better. Upon completion of their undergraduate program of study and award of the baccalaureate degree, students will be admitted to regular status in the Master of Business Administration or the M.S. in Criminal Justice Administration program.
