Accelerated Master's Programs for Undergraduates
offers undergraduates with demonstrated academic ability a fast track
to a graduate degree. Talented students can earn a bachelor's and master's
degree in approximately five years instead of the usual six or seven.

year, careful selection of undergraduate courses beginning in the freshman
year is essential. Interested students should speak with an advisor
in the department of their undergraduate major as early as possible.
Students should have Advanced Placement (AP) credit in order to reduce
the number of undergraduate hours necessary to be taken during the senior
represents two distinct patterns. The first allows students to continue
with graduate work in the same discipline as the undergraduate major.
The second pattern enables students to complement the undergraduate
major with graduate study in another area. See specific Accelerated
