Accelerated Programs (4+1) Programs

Accelerated (4+1) programs are programs that let you earn your bachelor’s degree and master’s degree at the same time.

These programs take five years in total, which is why they're called 4+1 programs. For the first three years, you’ll focus on undergraduate classes. In year four, you’ll take both undergraduate and graduate classes. And in year five, you’ll finish your graduate classes and earn your master’s degree.
