Earn Your Advanced Degree Sooner

Laptop on desk with phone and notebook

The accelerated degree program in Communication enables academically qualified students to earn either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree and a Master of Science (MS) degree — graduating sooner than they would in traditional programs. The ability to communicate effectively is one of the most sought-after skills by prospective employers. Graduates of the accelerated degree program enter the workforce one year sooner with the benefits of a master’s degree in communication, using the year saved to gain full-time experience and earn a salary in the field.


Incoming freshman and current students are eligible to apply for either the Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Master of Science (MS) accelerated degree programs. Students who are already matriculated may apply after completing a minimum of 90 credits but no more than 120 credits. Students who are accepted will take graduate level courses in their fourth and fifth years.


Please email Julia May, PhD, director of master's programs in Communication, at for more information.
