Accelerated pathway dual degree programs provide academically outstanding students an accelerated pathway to complete an undergraduate and a master’s degree in a reduced period of time. Accelerated pathway programs provide undergraduate students permission to take a specified number of master’s level courses as electives toward completion of their bachelor’s degree. The students then apply to the graduate degree program, and if accepted, the previously completed graduate coursework during the senior year is counted as transfer credit toward the completion of the master’s degree. 

Students wishing to apply for the B.S. in Human Resource Development/M.S. Global Retailing accelerated pathway program must meet the following requirements:

  1. Currently enrolled in Human Resources Development, B.S.  
  2. Junior standing and completion of 30 semester hours of College of Technology coursework

  4. Minimum 3.25 GPA over all College of Technology course work
  5. Approval from the undergraduate Program Coordinator for Human Resource Development
  6. Approval from the graduate Program Coordinator for Global Retailing

Students may choose up to 6 hours to apply to both the undergraduate and graduate degrees from the approved list.
