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.


Accelerated Masters Program for Undergraduates

BS in Accounting and MS in Accounting

The accelerated program in Accounting provides the opportunity for a student to complete a BS in Accounting (122 hours) within a four-year period and to shorten the time required to finish the Master of Science degree.

Interested students should:

  • have Summer School credit or Advanced Placement credit in order to reduce the number of undergraduate hours necessary to be taken during the senior year
  • identify themselves as potential accelerated candidates early in their academic careers in order to receive appropriate advising. Although formal admission to an accelerated program usually occurs in the junior year, careful selection of undergraduate courses beginning in the freshman year is essential. Interested students should talk with an advisor in the Department of Accounting as early as possible.
  • earn a minimum GPA of 3.0 in accounting courses and 3.0 in the University.
  • take ACC 318 and 319 or 325 by the end of their junior year.
  • take ACC 530, 540, or 542 as either undergraduate or graduate credit depending on the undergraduate credit needs of the student
  • take the GMAT in the fall of the senior year.
  • seek admission to the Graduate School in the fall of the senior year.

Accelerated Masters Program for Undergraduates

BA in French and MBA in
Business Administration

The accelerated program in French/Business Administration provides the opportunity for a student to complete a BA in French (122 hours) within a four-year period and to shorten the time required to finish the MBA.

Interested students should:

  • have some Advanced Placement credit upon admission to UNCG in order to reduce the number of required undergraduate hours.
  • identify themselves as potential accelerated candidates early in their academic careers in order to receive appropriate advising. Although formal admission to an accelerated program usually occurs in the junior year, careful selection of undergraduate courses beginning in the freshman year is essential. Interested students should talk with an advisor in the department of Romance Languages as early as possible.

In the spring of the junior year, students should

  • take the GMAT
  • apply for admission to the Graduate School and the MBA program

Accelerated Masters Program for Undergraduates

BA or BS in Mathematics and MA in Mathematics

The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers an accelerated program that permits the exceptionally well qualified student to receive an undergraduate degree in mathematics (BA or BS) within a four year period and a Masters degree in mathematics (MA) in an additional year.

A thorough knowledge of calculus is necessary for much of the advanced work required to complete the undergraduate degree. Because of this, it is unlikely that a student would be able to complete the accelerated program without having AP calculus credit. Advanced Placement credit in other areas would also be helpful in order to reduce the number of required undergraduate hours.

Most mathematics courses depend on previous knowledge and have significant prerequisites. It is therefore very important that students identify themselves as potential candidates for the accelerated program early in their academic careers in order to receive appropriate advising. Although formal admission to the accelerated program does not occur until the student achieves junior status, proper advising must take place as early as possible so that appropriate coursework can be chosen in the correct sequence. This is particularly important with respect to mathematics courses so that the student will be ready to begin advanced work in mathematics suitable for the masters degree as soon as possible.

Students in the accelerated program must meet all requirements for the respective degree received. No coursework may be counted toward more than one degree. See requirements for the undergraduate degrees. The MA in mathematics requires 30-33 hours of graduate level mathematics including a thesis. Specific requirements for the MA are listed in The Graduate School Bulletin.
