The Graduate School has received positive feedback for changing the name of concurrent programs (BS/MS and BA/MA) to accelerated programs. The change will:

    • better reflect the 4+1 programs (4 years UG and 1 year master)
    • avoid the confusion currently existent on campus with the concurrent degrees in undergrad education
    • align our language with the mainstream one used in higher education for accelerated programs, as well as with the language used by faculty when discussing these accelerated programs
    • also make K-State graduate programs more competitive

The Graduate School is working with the Registrar’s office to develop a clear operationalization process for these accelerated programs.
