Accelerated Graduate Enrollment (AGRADE)
The AGRADE program in philosophy enables qualified seniors to enroll simultaneously in the undergraduate and graduate program. Students may elect a minimum of three and a maximum of 16 AGRADE credits, which will be used both to complete the bachelor's as well as to serve as the beginning of graduate study.
AGRADE participants will receive undergraduate tuition rates for the AGRADE graduate course credits that they complete as an undergraduate. Because the master's in philosophy requires 32 total credits, this amounts to as much as a 50% tuition reduction for the master's degree.
