01.05.2018   Three 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 7-8 years, the fast-track cuts that time down to 5 years.
