Accelerated Pathways

Options for UW-Madison Undergraduates to Earn a Master's in a Year or 3 Semesters

Accelerated Pathways

Two of the School of Computer, Data & Information Sciences departments – Computer Sciences and Statistics – have developed programs that enable undergraduate students the opportunity to earn a master’s degree by continuing their studies directly after earning their bachelor’s degree. For both, the master’s degree can be earner in under the two years that is usually required.
