Accelerated Masters Program

This program is the fast track to an M.A. degree. Students in the program can earn a B.A. or B.S. degree in four years and the M.A. degree in five.

Juniors and seniors enrolled in the economics major at Kansas State University with a gpa of 3.2 or higher are invited to join. Each student in the program will work with an advisor to create an individualized program of study. The program of study will map out a plan to the meet requirements of both the B.A. or B.S. degree and the M.A. degree. The key to this accelerated path is that students are allowed to enroll in graduate-level courses in their senior year.

The accelerated masters program has several other advantages. First, it provides students with additional opportunities for undergraduate research. Second, all students in the program will be considered for funding upon completing the undergraduate degree. Students interested in pursuing this option should start the application process no later than March 1 of their junior year.
