Accelerated Master’s Program

Illinois Tech's Accelerated Master’s Program allows students to complete both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in as few as five years. As a bonus, undergraduate scholarships apply to the fifth year of study, meaning students pay the lower undergraduate tuition rate for graduate courses.

This degree program is focused, highly specialized, and saves you money—and you can earn your second degree in one of more than 50 areas.

Who Is Eligible?

  • Current undergraduate students who are at least in their second year
  • Alumni who have completed their undergraduate degree in the last three years

Why Should I Consider Enrolling in the Accelerated Master’s Program?

  • Students with undergraduate scholarships from the university are eligible to carry them over into their fifth year
  • Choose from either a pre-determined pairing of bachelor’s and master’s degrees, or work with your adviser to select your own pairing that matches your interests
