Accelerated Master’s Programs

A new initiative, AMP IU, is offering incentives for the creation of interdisciplinary Accelerated Master’s Degree Programs, through which participating students can earn both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in five years or less.

While IU Bloomington currently offers 25 such programs throughout the campus, AMP IU is designed to foster the cultivation of fresh new degree combinations that merge faculty expertise with student interests and market needs. 

Participating students will save time and money and expand their career opportunities. Departments will receive financial incentives for graduates of newly created cross disciplinary AMP options.

The initiative is led by the University Graduate School and supported by the Office of the Provost. Faculty interested in learning more about how to propose a new program, including potential financial incentives, may email
