What is an Accelerated Master’s Degree?

Michigan Tech’s accelerated master’s degree program is a faster, easier way for students in a variety of majors to earn a master’s degree. If you’re thinking about pursuing a master’s—immediately following your bachelor's—this degree option may be the right choice for you.

With the accelerated master’s degree program, you’ll benefit from:

  • Speed—complete your master’s degree in just one additional year of study beyond your bachelor’s.
  • Cost savings—an accelerated program means that you’ll spend less time, and less money, earning your degree.
  • Variety—there are multiple accelerated master’s degree options  to choose from.

Higher lifetime earnings—the National Association of Colleges and Employers reports that people with master’s degrees earn up to 43 percent more than those with just bachelor’s degrees—the accelerated program helps you get there faster!
