At UVM, you can start working toward a master's degree as an undergraduate, helping you save time and money on your path to an advanced degree.


A number of departments and programs provide opportunities for selected UVM undergraduates to participate in Accelerated Entry into Master's Programs (AMPs). The AMP allows early admission to graduate studies with up to 9 concurrent credits double-counted toward the bachelor's and master's degrees, effectively a 9 credit scholarship for the graduate program. Some programs allow only 6 credits to double-count but allow an additional 3 credits while an undergraduate to count towards the master's only.

The AMP option is available for admission to the following graduate programs:

Consult the Graduate College catalogue or appropriate Dean’s Office for information about these AMP options and for other accelerated degree programs open to traditional graduate applicants.
