Accelerated Master’s Degree Programs
Qualified students can take graduate-level courses during senior year, toward completion of an undergraduate degree, and transfer those credits into the master’s program. This results in significant financial and time savings. Program options include:
Choose two internships from more than 80 approved agencies, which may include: Connecticut Department of Children and Families, Catholic Charities, Connecticut Juvenile/Family Courts, Connecticut Birth to Three Systems, Pregnant and Parenting Teen Services, and Youth Services Bureaus. Potential careers: caseworkers, counselors, teachers, youth service workers, early intervention associates, child advocates, probation/truancy officers, child care resources, and more.
Students can minor in growing fields like gerontology, youth services, and students have the opportunity to qualify for accelerated master’s degree programs. Build connections and gain real-world experience through two internships.
