Accelerated Master's in Literacy Program

Jump start your degree

The MSEd-Literacy Accelerated Master's Degree Program option provides Missouri State University undergraduate students the opportunity to enroll in a combined bachelor’s and master's degree program. Eligible BSEd majors may apply for preliminary acceptance into the MSEd-Literacy program after admission requirements for the accelerated master's option have been satisfied.

Once accepted, students are eligible to take up to 12 credit-hours of graduate-level literacy courses that apply to both their undergraduate and graduate programs.

Scheduling requirements

Before enrolling in courses for both undergraduate and graduate credit, an undergraduate student must be accepted into the Accelerated MSEd – Literacy Program and receive prior approval from the Literacy Program Coordinator, the student’s program Department Head, and the Dean of the Graduate College. This permission can be obtained through a mixed-credit form.

A student will be fully admitted to the MSEd Literacy program upon completion of the requirements for the baccalaureate degree, provided the student meets all other requirements for admission. Acceptance into the program and all approvals must be completed prior to the end of the change of schedule period for the course(s).
