Accelerated and Dual Degree Programs in Health Professions and Human Services

In today’s competitive workforce, a master’s degree has become increasingly valuable. The School of Health Professions and Human Services offers many accelerated and dual-degree program options, which allow students to earn both an undergraduate and graduate degree in 5-6 years.

Benefits

Saves you time

Saves you time: Students can earn both degrees in less time than if each degree were pursued separately.

Saves you money

Saves you money: Students can take up to 15 credits as an undergraduate that fulfill requirements for their master’s degree programs - which could mean a savings of over $20,000! Additionally, while completing graduate course work as an undergraduate, you may be able to benefit from utilizing your financial aid and/or scholarships.

Gets you into the healthcare workforce quicker

Our Offerings

Students can apply during the end of their sophomore year or during their junior year, and if accepted, are conditionally admitted to the master’s program. We currently offer the following accelerated and dual-degree program options, and we expect that this list will continue to increase.
