Accelerated Program for MEDIA Department Undergraduate Majors

Undergraduate students in the Media department can choose to enter an accelerated path to a Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) degree. Beginning in their junior year and after acceptance into the accelerated path, Media students can begin to take graduate-level courses. Students in this accelerated path can take up to 12 credits of graduate-level courses that will apply to their undergraduate degrees. Once the student formally moves from undergraduate to graduate status, assuming that the student has achieved a "B" grade or above in those graduate courses, those 12 credits of graduate work will apply toward the 42-credit requirement for the Master of Fine Arts. This would leave 30 credits, including a Project/Thesis course, for the student to complete in order to receive the M.F.A. degree.
