NOTE: The accelerated master's programs are for ISU students only. Graduate students who already have a bachelor's degree are not eligible for these programs.
Accelerated master’s degree programs are designed to enhance the opportunities and advanced training for Illinois State's most talented undergraduates. Students complete their bachelor's degree and then subsequently their master's degree with approximately one additional year of study.
Admission to accelerated programs is competitive and depends on a positive review of an internal transfer application by the program’s admissions committee. Accordingly, the admission requirements for these programs are higher than those required if the master’s degree were pursued entirely after the receipt of the bachelor’s degree.
