Accelerated Programs at WMU
Accelerated Degree Programs allow eligible students the opportunity to complete both an undergraduate degree and a master’s degree in less time because the student may begin taking graduate courses while still an undergraduate. During their senior year of their undergraduate careers, students in the accelerated program may substitute up to 12 credit hours of graduate course work for undergraduate course work. Once they enter graduate school, they’re able to quickly move through their master’s degree requirements because they’ve already taken several graduate classes.
The following departments offer the accelerated degree program.
|CCE||Civil Engineering (Accelerated)|
|CS||Computer Science (Accelerated)|
|ECE||Electrical Engineering (Accelerated)|
|IME||Industrial Engineering (Accelerated)|
|ME||Mechanical Engineering (Accelerated)|
|BLS||Orientation & Mobility (Accelerated)|
|PAPR||Paper/Imaging Science & Engineering (Accelerated)|
|SWRK||Social Work (Accelerated)|
|BLS||Vision Rehabilitation Therapy (Accelerated)|
Dr. Koorosh Naghshineh, Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering(MAE) Department Graduate Adviser, Professor and Director, Noise and Vibration Laboratory notes, “MAE was the first [department] in the university to introduce such a program. It is a great way of recruiting our good undergrad students to our graduate programs.”
