GSAS Accelerated Master's Programs
Qualified Fordham juniors may apply for the accelerated master’s in select GSAS programs. The accelerated master’s program allows exceptional students to follow a plan to complete both their bachelor’s and master’s in a total of five years (4+1). Fordham undergraduate students apply during their junior (or equivalent) year, and if admitted to the accelerated program, they are eligible to take up to three GSAS graduate-level courses in their senior year which will count toward both the bachelor’s and the master’s degree. No more than three (3) GSAS graduate courses, in total, may be taken during senior year. Upon graduation with their bachelor's degree, students can then complete the M.A. or M.S. degree in one year.
Programs that offer the accelerated master’s are listed on the accelerated master’s programs web page. Please refer to this page or to a specific program for eligibility requirements (such as minimum GPA) and program participation.
