Benefits of an Accelerated Master’s Degree

Finish your Master’s degree quickly.

Ability for students to accelerate through the program and take necessary courses in 8-week terms to complete degree requirements in one calendar year.

Transition Smoothly from Undergraduate.

Students will have the opportunity to move directly into the Master’s program directly from completing an undergraduate degree (pending pre-requisite completion).
