Accelerated Pathway Programs

Undergraduate students at Southern can complete their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in a combined five years in a variety of majors as part of a package of accelerated programs. The pathway enables students to shave a full year off the time that it generally takes to finish, saving students a full year’s tuition and expenses.

The programs typically enable students to replace 6 to 12 credits of undergraduate electives with graduate-level courses in their major during their senior year. Students are encouraged to apply for acceptance into an accelerated program during the spring semester of their junior year.
