Accelerated Four-Year (3+1)

The accelerated four-year (3+1) BA or BFA/MS program is designed for outstanding School of Communications students—those who rank in the top 20 percent of their high school class and have a combined SAT score of 1200 (or ACT of 27).

Students are invited to the program as freshmen and complete the bachelor’s degree at an accelerated pace (three years as opposed to the typical four). 

Program features include:

  • flat tuition and fees for the entire four years, with academic scholarships carrying over from the third to the fourth (graduate) year
  • dedicated housing for students in the program, including a dedicated residential assistant
  • an academic adviser who also serves as the director of the program within the school
