Accelerated Degree Programs

Temple University offers several Accelerated Degree Programs arranged between undergraduate and graduate or professional schools and colleges. Students apply separately to and must be accepted by both programs. The curricula of accelerated degree programs are not integrated, thus students must complete all curricular requirements of each program. However, the programs may allow special coordination of scheduling or allocation of electives. Upon successful completion of each component of the accelerated program, the student will receive the degree specific to that component. 

Students interested in the dental, medical, pharmacy, physical therapy or podiatry programs should contact Neida Perez in the Office of Pre-Professional Health Studies (www.temple.edu/healthadvising; e-mail: healthadvising@temple.edu; phone: 215-204-2513) as early in their academic career as possible to discuss eligibility, professional school applications and requirements to fulfill both the undergraduate and professional program requirements.

Below is a list of accelerated programs. Click on the program you are interested in to find more information.

4+1 Undergraduate/Graduate Accelerated Programs:

Eligible undergraduate students use up to 12 specified graduate credits approved by the school/college to fulfill requirements for their undergraduate degree.  Upon graduation from their undergraduate program, students move seamlessly into their graduate program, which they complete in one additional year.
