Does your program offer an Accelerated Master's Degree Program?

The Accelerated Master's Degree Program (AMDP) allows students to reduce the total number of credits required to complete their undergraduate and graduate degrees by applying up to twelve 500 and 600-level credit hours toward their graduation requirements on both degree programs.  Generally, courses required on the undergraduate major may not be counted on the graduate program.   Click here to see all Accelerated Master's Degree Programs.
