Fast runner, sprinter, 3-D graphicFast-track degree programs offer a quicker route to your graduate degree

Jan. 5, 2018: Four departments in the College of Arts and Sciences at Lamar University offer fast-track programs that set you up to receive both your bachelor's and master's degrees in one program, simultaneously.

These programs suit exceptionally motivated and successful students, especially if you have a clear vision of your professional goals. Fast-tracked degree programs allow you to take graduate courses as an undergraduate student and can eliminate years from your time in school. Where two degrees would normally take you seven to eight years, the fast-track cuts that time down to five years.
