Accelerated Program

The objective of the accelerated Bachelor's/Master's degree program is to provide a means by which exceptional undergraduate students at Radford University may complete the requirements for both the baccalaureate and master's degrees at an accelerated pace.

Students accepted for the bachelor's/master's accelerated programs may take up to 9 graduate credits while studying as undergraduates, and these may count toward both the bachelor's and master's degrees. Courses taken at the 400-level may not be repeated at the 500-level for both undergraduate and graduate credit.


Applicants must have completed 60 undergraduate credits, have 24 credits remaining in their undergraduate programs, have a cumulative GPA of 3.25, and have earned a minimum of a B in COMS 231 and COMS 330.

Transfer students must have completed a minimum of two semesters as a full-time student at Radford University and have a minimum of 24 hours. Transfer students must also have a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and have earned a minimum of a B in COMS 231 and COMS 330.
