Collaborative/Accelerated Programs

Maybe you're the type of student who already has proven academic abilities and solid leadership skills. Maybe you want to be on the fast track of the learning process so you can hit the job market sooner. When we designed our Collaborative/Accelerated Programs, we had you in mind.

Earn your undergraduate and graduate degree in five years, rather than six, through our Accelerated Masters Programs (AMP) and Collaborative Master’s Programs (3-2 or 4+1). Heinz College has signed agreements with the following Institutions to provide you with this opportunity:

Allegheny College (3 years at Allegheny College + 2 years at Heinz College)

Bethany College (3 years at Bethany College + 2 years at Heinz College)

Carnegie Mellon University (3 years undergraduate + 1 year integrated + 1 year at Heinz)

Chatham University  (3 years at Chatham + 4 classes at Heinz during senior year at Chatham + 1 year at Heinz College)

Messiah College (3 years at Messiah College + 2 years at Heinz College)    

Details of each agreement (application, enrollment, financial aid, etc.) vary based on the institution and on the specific degree. Please read each agreement carefully.
