Accelerated M.A. Option

The Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development (OLPD) is proud to announce a new accelerated (one-year, full-time) Master of Arts (M.A.) option in the following OLPD program tracks beginning in Summer 2015:

What Is the Accelerated M.A.?

The accelerated M.A. is a full-time M.A. degree in OLPD designed specifically for graduate students who wish to complete an M.A. program within a shorter time frame and can devote a year to full-time study. Unlike our established M.A. program, which begins in the fall semester (typically in September), students admitted into the new accelerated M.A. program begin their full-time studies in summer (typically in July). In consultation with their faculty advisers, students continue to take a full-time course load in both the fall and spring semesters in order to graduate in May.

Program Highlights

How to Apply

The one-year M.A. option requires students to begin in the summer semester. See information on admission requirements and how to apply.

The deadline to apply to any of the OLPD accelerated M.A. program tracks for summer 2017 is March 1, 2017.
