Accelerated Program

Sacred Heart University students with a major in Political Science and a 3.0 grade point average are eligible for the accelerated program, which leads to the completion of both Bachelor of Science (BS) and Master of Arts (MA) degrees in five years. Eligible students can take up to six credits of graduate-level coursework in their senior year that can be applied to both degrees. Students should speak with their academic advisor in the Department of Government, Politics and Global Studies at the beginning of their junior year of study to discuss eligibility.
