Accelerated Master's Programs
There are over 60+ Accelerated Master’s degree options at UNH – qualified students can complete both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in as little as 5 years! New programs are being added all of the time so visit our website for a current list of programs.
The Accelerated Master’s program is an optimal way for qualified UNH undergraduate students to begin earning graduate credit during their senior year. Students in most programs are able to take up to 12 credits that will count for both undergraduate and graduate credit, allowing them to maximize their time on campus and the return on their educational investment, as they seek to increase their marketability after graduation.
