Accelerated Master’s Program Options

John Brown University undergraduate students may begin work on a graduate degree after reaching junior status (60 completed hours) by declaring an Accelerated Master’s Program (AMP). Once students declare an AMP, their academic plan will reflect the courses required, and they will be assigned a graduate advisor in addition to their undergraduate advisor. Additional information can be viewed under Academic Policies-Accelerated Master’s Program.

An AMP in higher education provides students with 12 credit hours of graduate course work, which may be applied toward the JBU M.A. in Higher Education degree program at the completion of their undergraduate degree.

For the higher education accelerated master’s option, a minimum grade of ‘C/2.0’ or better is required in each course.
