Accelerated Master's 4 + 1


The accelerated master's (4+1) options allow undergraduate students in certain majors to take a limited number of master's-level courses, each of which will satisfy both an undergraduate degree requirement and a requirement in a future related master's program.  The 4+1 option also simplifies future admission to the master's program.
