Accelerated Programs
for Current FSC Students

Put yourself on the fast-track!

Florida Southern offers multiple paths for accelerating your education. The 4+1 Series gives every FSC student opportunities to set themselves apart and go further. We also offers options for students that have already chosen a professional career in Accounting or Education.

4+1 Series:
Begin your graduate studies as a college senior

Our exclusive 4+1 accelerated programs are designed to meet the needs of our most ambitious students.

The Way it Works

If you know that you want to earn a master’s degree immediately after college, our 4+1 series of programs allow you to pave the path toward a master’s or professional degree quickly — saving you both time and money. At the end of your junior year at FSC, you can apply for early admission into the master’s program of your choice participating in the 4+1 Series program. 

When accepted, students can take up to three graduate courses as their undergraduate electives during their senior year. This allows for a much faster path toward the completion of their graduate career. Our programs are top-ranked and many graduates credit their professional success because of the academics that challenged and rewarded them.
