Accelerated Master’s Student Testimonials

“I chose to do the Accelerated Masters program, because I knew that I wanted to pursue a graduate degree, and that I had unfulfilled electives my Sr. year that could be filled with the graduate courses. Having heard that this would enable me to obtain my Masters degree within about a year after my undergraduate degree was very attractive. I could look at it with the mindset of elevating my bachelors degree to a masters degree with only about another year of commitment.”

“The biggest draw was the ability to complete my master’s 1 year after graduating with my bachelors, additionally, I was involved in research and because of that, it was a smooth transition into graduate school. Being able to ‘try out’ graduate school before committing to it is another advantage I saw.”

“I chose to do the Accelerated Masters program because it gave me the ability to advance my career aspirations while saving me a year of school. Another factor in choosing to do the Accelerated Masters was that I would not have to take the GRE.”
