Accelerated Graduate Programs

Accelerated Degree Programs allow eligible students the opportunity to complete both an undergraduate degree and a master’s 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 substitute up to 12 credit hours of graduate course work for undergraduate course work. Once they enter graduate school, they're able to quickly move through their master's degree requirements because they've already taken several graduate classes.

The following accelerated degree programs are available at Western Michigan University: a photo of a man riding a recumbent tricycle past the spire of the Engineering College at Western Michigan University.  The tricycle is very long with two small weels in the front and a larger wheel in the rear.
