Five-Year Accelerated Master’s Option

A master’s degree can accelerate the trajectory of your teaching career and jumpstart your earning potential upon graduation. With UNH’s Accelerated Master’s Programs, undergraduates who qualify can earn a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in as little as five years — saving time and money, and increasing their marketability. Of course you can also wait to take teacher preparation courses solely at the graduate level; however, this plan will take more than a single year.
