At Fontbonne University, we can maximize your college experience - and career options — with an opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree in human services and a master's degree in social work in just five years. Fontbonne has an agreement with Washington University — a partnership that only one other university in the nation offers — that allows students to earn a graduate degree with only one additional year of studies. This option allows you to earn your degrees at a quicker pace than traditional programs without sacrificing educational quality.

3-2 Program

As a Fontbonne student, you may choose the 3-2 program in connection with the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University. Once you have completed the first three years of required work for a major in human services at Fontbonne — and provided you have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 — you may apply for admission to the GWB School of Social Work at the end of your junior year.
