Accelerate from Undergrad to Graduate School

About Pathways

YU’s accelerated bachelor’s/master’s Pathways programs allow current YU undergraduates to begin earning graduate credits that count towards both their undergraduate and graduate degrees. After completing their bachelor’s students may complete their master’s degree in as little as one year. For more information make an appointment with an Academic Advisor.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pathways

The Pathways program is a way to get a jump start on a graduate degree while still studying as an undergraduate student at YU. Students accepted into a pathways program will be allowed to take graduate courses to fulfill both undergraduate and graduate degree requirements. 

Students interested in one of the pathways programs will need to apply to the graduate degree program during their junior/senior year of study. For more information contact us via email.

Tuition for graduate courses taken during your undergraduate years will be included in your undergraduate tuition so there are NO additional tuition charges for those courses!  By participating in a pathways program, you will be saving money towards the completion of a graduate degree. For example, if you begin a pathways program during your junior year and take 1 graduate course (3 credits) per semester during your junior and senior year, you would have earned 12 graduate credits. If your intended graduate program is 30 credits, you would only have to pay tuition for the remaining 18 credits! 

We are working to create pathways for as many graduate programs as possible. And even if the program you are interested in is not yet included as a pathway, may still be able to take courses at the graduate level during your undergraduate study. For more information, contact your undergraduate academic advisor. 

Yes! That is one of the main benefits of our pathways programs. Students will be able to take graduate courses that count both towards their undergraduate and eventual graduate requirements.
