ACHIEVE MORE THAN ACADEMIC SUCCESS
The Advanced Master’s Accelerator Program is a one-semester, pre-master’s program designed specifically for international students. It is ideal for students who are ready to succeed in immersive English-speaking classrooms, but who also want the benefit of English-language and academic training that will help them succeed in their graduate program. The curriculum offers a combination of coursework for your intended graduate degree and MAP-exclusive classes. You will be equipped with the practical, degree-specific vocabulary and research skills you need to excel in your coursework.
