Accelerated Degree Programs (4+1) Hero Image

Diversify Your Career Choices by Combining Your Undergraduate Degree with a Graduate Degree

In as little as one year beyond your undergraduate degree, you can enhance your career opportunities by earning a graduate degree.

How Does it Work?

The accelerated degree programs allow a select group of students to apply for graduate programs in their junior year. If granted provisional acceptance, you may take graduate-level courses during the final year of your undergraduate program. Because some undergraduate courses are waived under an accelerated degree program, you’ll be able to complete both the undergraduate and graduate degrees in only one additional year.
