Accelerated Master's Programs for Undergraduates

UNCG 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.

Although formal admission to an accelerated program is usually in the junior 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 year.

The program 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 Master's Programs listed below for complete requirements.
