Accelerated Programs

The College of Science and Technology offers several Accelerated Degree Programs arranged between undergraduate and graduate or professional schools and colleges. These programs enable academically qualified students to earn a bachelor's and an advanced degree - graduating sooner than if completing two distinct programs.

+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 most cases, in one additional year. Students should meet with their advisor as soon as possible to discuss requirements for eligibility and the application process.

3+3, 3+4 UNDERGRADUATE/PROFESSIONAL ACCELERATED PROGRAMS

Pre-Professional Accelerated Programs allow Pre: Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, and Podiatry (3+4 Tracks) students as well as Physical Therapy (3+3 Track) students the option of earning both their Bachelor's degree and Graduate Degrees in a shorter period of time after successfully passing all courses in the first year of professional school at Temple University.

Students interested in the Pre-Med 3+4 Accelerated Track must be previously accepted to Temple University as a Pre-Med Health Scholar and contact Pre-Professional Health Studies during their first semester to confirm eligibility.1 Students interested in all other accelerated programs should contact Pre-Professional Health Studies during the first semester of their undergraduate academic career to discuss eligibility, as well as the professional school application process. To be eligible for undergraduate degree consideration, the student must be accepted into the professional school program at Temple University and successfully complete the first year of study.
