Accelerated Bachelor to Master (ABM) Degree Programs provide opportunities for academically prepared and motivated undergraduate students to complete degree requirements for both the bachelor and master’s degrees simultaneously at an accelerated pace. By linking the curricula of the undergraduate and graduate programs, not only is student knowledge and skill level reinforced, but students can complete both programs sooner and at less expense than if they enrolled in both programs separately. Students accepted into an ABM program are eligible to complete 9 designated graduate hours, which will then be utilized to fulfill both undergraduate and graduate degree requirements. After the completion of the designated hours, students are formally admitted to graduate study.
Students hoping to enroll in the Accelerated Bachelor to Master (ABM) program must contact their advisor prior to filling out an application to identify the appropriate term of enrollment. This will be the first term the student is enrolled in exclusively graduate courses. For specific information regarding application materials, deadlines, and managing their formal admittance to graduate studies, contact the program director within the master’s program.
