Accelerated Degrees at QC

Take the Fast Lane to a Graduate Degree

Accelerate Your Goals

Our Accelerated Degrees allow qualified students to begin taking coursework for a Master’s degree as an undergraduate student. If you are a Queens College student in upper sophomore or lower junior standing (45 – 75 credits) with a GPA of 3.0 or above, you may be eligible to enroll in an accelerated graduate degree. Up to 12 credits of graduate coursework can count towards both a student’s baccalaureate degree requirements and the degree requirements for the graduate program of interest. Admitted students begin taking graduate coursework at undergraduate tuition rates in their senior year. In some cases, students may earn their Master’s degree in as little as one year after completion of their Bachelor’s degree.
