Accelerated Graduate Degree Programs
A master’s degree has become increasingly valuable in today’s competitive job market. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, professionals with an advanced degree experience fewer chances of unemployment than those who have a bachelor’s degree. With that in mind, our Accelerated Degree Programs are designed to provide exceptional undergraduate students a pathway to earn both an undergraduate and graduate degree in as little as five years. In addition, our programs allow students to pursue their professional interests while taking advantage of experiential education experiences, internships, research, and more, creating career opportunities.
Earn two degrees in less time; in addition to saving money, you will benefit from a seamless transition from undergraduate to graduate study while increasing your marketability in the workforce.
Save time and money
Complete your degrees sooner, save on tuition costs and enter the workforce at least one year earlier with a graduate degree.
Apply your financial aid towards your graduate credits which means no course overload fees while in the accelerated dual-degree program.
Increased earning potential
Graduating with both degrees often means higher starting salaries and more earning potential throughout your career.
You’ll have an additional area of expertise and the credentials to tackle a broad range of industry-related projects. You’ll receive highly personalized academic support and advice to guide you in course selection in addition to networking opportunities.
Eligible Students with outstanding academic records may apply to the relevant program of interest once they have completed 60 credits and, upon acceptance, take two graduate courses (6 credits) within their last 30 credits. Please make sure to check on specific program admission requirements and prerequisites.
