ACCELERATED GRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAMS

If you are a Queens College student in upper sophomore or lower junior standing (45 - 75 credits) with a GPA of 3.0 or above, you may be eligible to enroll in an accelerated graduate degree. Accelerated Degrees allow qualified students to begin taking coursework for a Master's degree or graduate certificate as an undergraduate student. Admitted students begin taking graduate coursework at undergraduate tuition rates in their senior year.

Because admissions criteria vary from program to program, students must consult with and obtain permission from the graduate program advisor to enroll.
See your graduate program of interest below to learn more, and check back soon for new programs!

    • ART HISTORY (BA)

    GRADUATE ADVISOR

     

    With the permission of the Graduate Advisor, undergraduate Art History majors may take as many as four (4) GRADUATE COURSES as part of the BA in Art History. These courses will contribute to the completion of the requirements for the undergraduate Art History major.

  • MATHEMATICS (MA)

    PARTICIPATING UNDERGRADUATE MAJORS

    • MATHEMATICS (BA)

    GRADUATE ADVISOR

     

    The undergraduate BA in Mathematics requires students to choose from one of five degree-track options (Pure, Applied, Data Science and Statistics, Secondary Education, or Elementary Education). Each option allows a number of graduate classes (taken at Queens or on permit at another CUNY campus) to satisfy undergraduate degree requirements. Under the Accelerated MA in Mathematics, undergraduates majoring in Mathematics may transfer up to twelve (12) of these GRADUATE CREDITS to a Master of Arts in Mathematics. A student who earns 12 qualifying graduate credits at the undergraduate level may finish their Master of Arts in Mathematics program in one year.

    Application to the Accelerated MA program should be made in the upper sophomore, lower junior, or upper junior semesters. To apply, students should speak with the Graduate Advisor. At the time of application, students must have a 3.5 GPA overall and in Mathematics courses alone. Upon completion of the BA in Mathematics, students in the Accelerated MA with a 3.0 GPA overall and in Mathematics courses alone will matriculate automatically into the MA in Mathematics. At that point, the credit transfer will occur. (Students who do not meet the GPA requirements may apply for admission to the MA through the regular application process.)

    There are two restrictions on the graduate credit taken as part of the BA that may be transferred to the graduate degree program. First, only credit in which the student has earned a B or better may be transferred. Second, the following courses, when used as core requirements for the BA degree, may not be applied towards the MA degree:

    •             Pure or Applied Mathematics Options: MATH 611, 613
    •             Data Science and Statistics Option: MATH, 611, 613, 621, 633
    •             Secondary Education Option: MATH 505, 518, 611, 613
    •             Elementary Education Option: MATH 509, 518, 611, 613, 618

     

    Master of Arts in Pure Mathematics requirements (30 credits)

    A candidate for this degree is required to complete 30 credits in Mathematics including MATH 621, 628, 701, 702, and 703. With the approval of the Mathematics Department, a limited number of courses in Physics or Computer Science may be substituted. Note that the graduate courses listed above (categorized by undergraduate option) may not count for both the BA and MA degrees.

    Master of Arts with a Concentration in Applied Mathematics requirements (30 credits)

    A candidate for this degree is required to complete 30 credits in an approved sequence of graduate-level courses in Mathematics and related fields. All students must achieve a solid grounding in the three areas of probability and statistics, analytic methods, and numerical methods. This can be achieved by taking the following courses: MATH 621, 624, 625, 628, and 633. Note the that the graduate courses listed above (categorized by undergraduate option) may not count for both the BA and MA degrees.

    Any modifications to the requirements of the Accelerated MA program may be made only with the permission of the Graduate Advisor.

    To apply, please complete an application form and send it to Professor Scott Wilson. To learn more about the MA in Mathematics, contact the graduate advisor or visit the program's website.

    Curriculum

    • At least 15 credits of undergraduate philosophy courses, including specifically Philosophy 109, 140 and 143, all of which should be completed by the end of the student’s Junior year.
    • At least 30 credits of graduate courses, of which up to 6 credits may be taken in a supporting field outside Philosophy. The graduate work in Philosophy, totaling at least 24 credits, must include courses chosen from at least three of these five groups of courses: (i) History of Philosophy; (ii) Logic and Philosophy of Science; (iii) Metaphysics, Epistemology, and Contemporary Schools of Philosophy; (iv) Theory of Value; and (v) Philosophies of Special Disciplines.
    • Language Requirement: Either (a) three consecutive courses or (b) a proficiency exam (examination administered by the relevant language Department), in one of the following four languages: French, German, Greek, Latin.
    • A written comprehensive examination in Philosophy, to be taken in the student’s final semester. The examination consists of two parts: the first part deals with major figures in the history of philosophy; the second part deals with a major field of philosophy selected by the student in consultation with the Graduate Program Advisor.
    • A Master’s thesis, written under the supervision of a faculty director assigned to the student in consultation with the Graduate Program Advisor. The topic of the thesis should be selected at the beginning of the fourth year of study. (3 graduate Philosophy credits are given for this work and are counted towards the required minimum of 24).

    2. (ii) an overall GPA of 3.5 or higher
    3. (iii) completed at least 12 weeks of employment or internship related to their field of study before matriculating into the Risk Management MS program.

    Students who believe they meet these criteria should contact Cara Marshall, Program Director and Graduate Advisor, and submit proof of relevant internship/work experience as well as a Queens College transcript. The MS in Risk Management is a 30-credit program. Students who complete 12 credits as part of the Accelerated Master’s degree program are able to finish the full MS in one academic year.

    Advanced Certificate in Risk Management requirements (12 credits)

    Three required courses (9 credits):

    RM 701. Risk Management (fall only)
    RM 704. Risk Measurement (fall only)

    • URBAN STUDIES (BA)

    GRADUATE ADVISOR

     

    Applicants to the Accelerated MA program must have completed at least 60 credits and have a 3.0 GPA overall and in Urban Studies.   As undergraduate Urban Studies majors, they may take as many as four (4) graduate electives as part of the BA in Urban Studies.  These elective courses will contribute to the completion of the requirements for the undergraduate Urban Studies major.

    Students in the Accelerated MA program may take the required graduate courses only after completing the undergraduate Urban Studies program.  Thus, the typical student in the Accelerated MA program will take four elective graduate courses during their junior and senior years and, during the fifth year, will take four required graduate courses (URBST 705, two of URBST 706, 718, or 724, and one of URBST 725, 732, or 751) and two graduate electives, for a total of 18 credits.

    To apply, please complete an application form and send it to Professor Do J. LeeTo learn more about the Master's in Urban Affairs (MA), see the department's website, or view program requirements.
