An Accelerated Degree Program (ADP) enables political science and public and nonprofit administration undergraduate majors to earn a master’s degree in an accelerated time frame. The ADP consists of an undergraduate portion (the bachelor’s degree) and a graduate portion (the master’s degree). The curriculum is designed to fulfill all requirements of both the undergraduate and graduate degrees.
The Department of Political Science has two graduate programs offering accelerated degrees. Each political science ADP is offered as a simultaneous model; that is, the undergraduate and graduate degrees are conferred at the same time.
