Accelerated B.A. to M.A.

Interested in a Masters degree?

Did you know that you could start earning credits towards an M.A. in Languages before graduating?

Qualified UNC Greensboro undergraduate students who are pursuing a B.A in Spanish or a B.A in Languages, Literatures, and Cultures with a concentration in French and Francophone Studies may apply for admission to the Accelerated Master’s Program (AMP). An undergraduate GPA of 3.5 in the major is required. Transfer students may apply if their cumulative GPA from their previous institution was at least a 3.0, or if they have earned a 3.0 (with a 3.5 in courses related to the major) at UNCG during their first semester.

Applicants must have completed at least 60 credits and may not apply for admission to the AMP before the first semester of their junior year.

All applicants must begin by meeting with the Director of Graduate Studies to review eligibility and then start an online application through the Graduate School. Standard application requirements for the M.A. in Languages, Literatures, and Cultures program apply to the AMP.

Standardized entrance exams (GRE/ MAT) are not required for AMP students.

To ensure a timely decision and access to course enrollment, students must apply for admission to an Accelerated Master’s Program by July 1 for Fall AMP course enrollment, November 15 for Spring enrollment, and April 1 for Summer enrollment.

Admitted students may apply a maximum of 9 credits total from approved graduate-level courses toward completion of the undergraduate and graduate degree provided that: the courses are appropriate to attain the necessary competencies for the graduate degree; the student earns a grade of B (3.0) or better in each course; and the courses are at the 500-level or above and the student fulfills the graduate-level requirements of the courses.
