Accelerated Degree Programs

The College of Arts and Sciences offers several accelerated degree programs that enable academically qualified students to earn both a bachelor's and an advanced degree concurrently, graduating sooner than they would in traditional programs. Depending on the academic program, eligible students can be admitted to an accelerated degree program in one of two ways: as an incoming freshman or after completing a minimum of 90 credits but no more than 120 credits. To learn more about eligibility and enrollment requirements, visit the Undergraduate Admissions page.
