Accelerated Bachelor's to Master's Programs

Earn Two Degrees in Record Time.

Thinking about continuing your academic career after earning your bachelor’s degree? A master’s degree from Creighton University’s Graduate School can provide you with a competitive edge as you enter the job market. By completing an Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Program from Creighton University, you’ll gain that competitive edge in the job market—and earn it much sooner.

There’s no need to wait for commencement to start your graduate school journey. Our Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Programs feature strategically designed curricula that enable exceptional, qualified undergraduate students to take graduate level coursework as part of their undergraduate curriculum.

Once accepted, you can:

  • Earn 9-12 credit hours toward a master’s degree before completing your bachelor’s. In many cases, that’s nearly halfway toward a full master’s degree.
  • Complete a master’s degree sooner than if you were to start graduate school after earning their bachelor’s—saving time and money ($10,000 on average!).
  • Apply undergraduate scholarships and need-based aid toward graduate coursework until the end of your fourth academic year at Creighton.

You may have also heard of these programs referred to as Accelerated Master’s Programs, Dual Degree Programs, 4+1 Programs, or Accelerated Degree Programs. No matter the name, you save two of your most precious resources - time and money.
