The University of Alabama’s Accelerated Master’s Program (AMP) can help you meet your goal of earning a graduate degree while saving time and cutting costs.

Through AMP, you take courses that count simultaneously toward your undergraduate and graduate programs. Once admitted, an AMP student is approved to take up to 15 hours of graduate courses that will count towards both the Bachelor’s and graduate degrees. This can shorten the time it takes to earn your master’s degree by up to one year. Upon completion, you enter the job market with increased earnings potential and set yourself apart as a candidate with high-level critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

NOTE: Applicants must have earned 90 or more credit hours by Fall 2018 and have a minimum GPA of 3.3. Not all UA programs participate in AMP. Some programs have higher GPA requirements.  Refer to the table below for participating programs and requirements.
