Accelerated Degree Programs allow eligible students the opportunity to complete a graduate degree in less time because the student may begin taking graduate courses while still an undergraduate. During their senior year of their undergraduate careers, students in the accelerated program may take up to 12 credit hours of graduate course work which also counts in their credits toward their undergraduate degree. Once they enter graduate school, they're able to quickly move through their master's or doctoral degree requirements because they've already taken several graduate classes.

The following accelerated degree programs are available at Western Michigan University:
