Accelerated Master's Program
Accelerated Master's Program
A graduate degree can impact your career in many ways, whether it’s moving your job application to the top of the interview pile, helping you attain a position that would have otherwise been out of reach or providing you with a more robust knowledge base and tailored skill set to help you achieve your career aspirations. In short, a master’s degree can accelerate the trajectory of your career and jumpstart your earning potential upon graduation. Find an Accelerated Masters-eligible Program that will help you acheive your personal and professional goals.
The Accelerated Master’s program is an optimal way for qualified UNH undergraduate students to begin earning graduate credit during their senior year. Students in most programs are able to take up to 12 credits that will count for both undergraduate and graduate credit, allowing them to maximize their time on campus and the return on their educational investment, as they seek to increase their marketability after graduation.
- Plan ahead and solicit letters of recommendation well before the application deadline. Help your recommenders by reminding them of projects you’ve worked on or other ways that you are an excellent candidate for the program.
- Proof, edit and have someone else review your personal statement as it’s a key component of the graduate application. Make sure you answer all of the questions that are appropriate to the program you are applying to. Utilize the appropriate writing support team for your campus.
- Save room in your academic course schedule to take electives during your senior year that can count for both your bachelor’s and your master’s degrees.
- If admitted to the program, you can begin taking dual credit courses once you’ve completed 90 credits (in most programs) – apply early to make best use of dual credit courses. As graduate courses can be writing intensive, spreading the work out over 2-3 semesters might be more manageable than taking all of your graduate courses in one semester.
- Connect with the program coordinator or other advisor about the program early on; developing connections may provide you with research or funding opportunities during your graduate program.
- Explore funding opportunities outside of your graduate program. Start by connecting with the UNH Fellowships Office: https://www.unh.edu/fellowships-office/
- If you plan to work while pursuing your graduate program, explore companies that offer tuition reimbursement.
