Cedarville's Accelerated Bachelor's to Master's Options Make Education More Affordable

October 24, 2019

Four students in cap and gown at commencementCedarville is always looking for ways to help make our distinctly Christian education affordable and accessible for more families. Last week we mentioned three-year completion options that can help your student complete college sooner, saving time and money. Last year, we took this idea to another level.

We now offer Bachelor's-to-Master's accelerated completion plans. Students can complete a bachelor's degree in select majors plus a Master of Business Administration or Advanced Master of Divinity in just five or six years, and even four years if they choose the three-year B.A. completion plan.

Since all M.B.A. courses are online, your student can begin his or her career while finishing the graduate program. This option saves time and money by completing M.B.A. prerequisites and two M.B.A. core or elective courses as part of the undergraduate curriculum, then completing the M.B.A. in the next 12 months. By combining a B.A. or B.S. with an M.B.A., your student will be more marketable immediately.

Accelerated pathways to the University's Advanced M.Div. are new this year. Students who are interested in using their professional preparation in some type of vocational ministry will find this a great opportunity to prepare. The pathways lay out plans for a student to complete up to 30 hours of Bible credits during their undergraduate years, then move into the accelerated, 61-credit hour Advanced M.Div. program.

We currently have nearly 30 bachelor's-to-master's completion plan options available. Don't see your student's major listed? Talk to us! It's possible that we can create a specific plan just for them.

It's one more way Cedarville is doing all we can to make a distinctly Christian education affordable and accessible for families.


P.S. Encourage your student to apply by October 31, and we'll waive the application fee and send him or her a Cedarville T-shirt! And, we just announced a 3K Spirit Challenge. Any student who applies between now and October 31 will also be entered into a drawing for one of six $1,000 scholarships.
