Fast-track your student’s future

Accelerated Degree Programs allow current Marquette University undergraduate students to continue for a master’s degree after completing their bachelor’s degree. Students take classes during their senior year that meet requirements for both their undergraduate and graduate degrees. With proper planning, most can complete a master’s degree in one additional academic year — saving significant time and money. For a full list of programs, visit the Accelerated Degree website.

Uniquely, the Computing Accelerated Degree Program allows students from any undergraduate degree to learn how to effectively use data in their chosen profession. These students just need to choose three perquisite courses in computer science as electives to qualify. This flexibility allows them to receive an interdisciplinary education that combines their undergraduate degree with the knowledge and skills to exploit data. For more information about the Computing program, visit the department website.
