Dual and Accelerated Degrees

In today’s competitive job market, having a master’s degree can give you a leg up on the competition. Some fields even require one. At Assumption, our dual degree and accelerated master’s programs are designed for academically motivated students to seamlessly transition from their undergraduate program into one of our graduate programs.

Assumption offers two paths:  

Option 1: Apply as a high school senior to an undergraduate and graduate program with one application

With one application, students applying to the College as an undergraduate can apply to one of our dual degree programs below and, if admitted, will be enrolled in both the undergraduate and graduate programs. Remove the stress of having to worry about applying to a graduate program as you near the end of your undergraduate experience. The pathway to your graduate program will be clearly outlined for you, and your advisor will meet with you regularly to ensure you stay on track.

Option 2: Apply to a graduate program during your junior year at Assumption

Not sure yet about continuing your education after your undergraduate degree? You will have time to make that decision and still be able to take advantage of our accelerated graduate program options. Apply to the graduate program in your junior year at Assumption and, if admitted, begin taking graduate-level courses in your senior year, saving you time and money.
