Accelerated 4+1 program badgeYou can accomplish a lot in five years

Pursue a master’s degree in less time and with less financial commitment.

Designed for the dedicated and driven Fulton Schools student, accelerated 4+1 programs combine advanced undergraduate course work with graduate course work, enabling students to earn both a bachelor’s and master’s degree within five years.

By strengthening technical competence and distinguishing students among their peers, the program prepares students for success in an intensely competitive and global workforce, while enhancing their lifetime earning power. It is a cost-effective way to specialize in your field — paving the way for doctoral studies and a lifetime of intellectually stimulating work.

Graduating faster makes more cents!

ASU awards New American University scholarships, renewable for eight consecutive semesters, to incoming freshmen. If you complete your undergraduate degree in less than eight semesters, you may use any remaining scholarship award to pay for graduate courses as part of your accelerated 4+1 program.
