Residential Master's and Accelerated Master's Pathways

Earning a Master’s degree carries many benefits, from deepening your knowledge on a subject to expanding your professional network. But perhaps the most significant benefit is increasing your earning potential and job prospects. 

Norwich offers a variety of pathways for you to achieve an advanced degree, from traditional on-campus and online programs to accelerated master’s programs that are both integrated and sequential.

Master's - Your Way

Traditional On-Campus Master's Programs:

Norwich offers two residential master programs Master of Architecture and Master of Athletic Training. Both programs offer accelerated pathways with completion in less than one year for students with an appropriate undergraduate degree. 

Online Master’s Programs:

Our online masters degrees are an extension of our 200-year legacy of developing leaders and demonstrate your proven ability to lean into your work, take on challenges, and go beyond.

Accelerated Master’s Programs:

Norwich’s accelerated programs enable students, both on campus and online, to save time and money by earning graduate credits that apply to both a bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree. The accelerated programs include an integrated path and one that is sequential

Integrated Pathway:

Norwich’s integrated master’s program allows undergraduate students a seamless transition from undergraduate education into graduate education. Students can identify and plan a graduate course of study during their junior year as an undergraduate in consultation with your program advisor. This means students earn both degrees simultaneously at the end of five years of study.

Sequential Pathway:

The sequential path allows students in undergraduate programs to apply their coursework, whether it’s a part of their major or minor, to various master’s programs. This path is ideal for students interested in diversifying their educational experience. Students pursuing this track will earn two degrees at different times – the bachelor's degree is conferred typically at the end of four years, and the master's at the end of five years (4+1).
