Accelerated Pathways to a Master's Degree

Cedarville offers accelerated completion pathways that allow you to earn both a bachelor's and master's degree in just five years (and possibly four years if you follow one of our three-year bachelor's completion plans).

Why choose an accelerated bachelor's-to-master's completion plan?

  • Save time and money by completing prerequisites and two master’s-level courses as part of your undergraduate program … at no extra cost for most programs
  • Enhance your marketability as you search for a job by earning a highly regarded professional credential along with your undergraduate degree
  • Complete select master's degrees online during the fifth year while you are already working
  • Enjoy streamlined admission to the master's program

How the accelerated pathways work:

  • Complete any required prerequisites as part of your undergraduate electives (no extra cost for most programs).
  • Take at least two graduate courses during your senior year (no extra cost for most programs).
  • Apply to The Graduate School at Cedarville University
  • Start your graduate program with advanced status, reducing your overall cost and time to completion.
