Why I decided to​ do the accelerated MSA program​

The accelerated MSA really appealed to me because it allowed me to finish my Bachelor's degree while also getting a head start on a Master's degree.  I felt that instead of taking "filler" classes to reach the credit hours required for a bachelor's degree it was advantageous to take classes required by the MSA program, that I was planning to take in the future, which also helps fulfill the credit hours needed for UG.  It really seemed like the best of both worlds.
