Earn a master’s degree in just one year with a Cabrini 4+1 program!

What is a 4+1 program and am I eligible?

Our 4+1 programs offer students an accelerated path to earning a graduate degree. You’ll earn your master’s degree in just one year, immediately after you finish your bachelor’s degree!

You can apply for a 4+1 program as soon as your sophomore year and even into your senior year. Admissions requirements vary, depending on the program. Transfer students are welcome to apply!

After you’re accepted, you’ll take courses during your senior year that apply toward your graduate degree. You’ll complete two degrees in only five years!

What 4+1 programs does Cabrini offer?

Why should I enroll in a 4+1 program?

By receiving your master’s degree in just one year, you’ll save the time and expense of a typical graduate program, which usually takes at least two years to complete. As soon as you’re accepted into the 4+1 program, any graduate-level courses you take will be offered at undergraduate prices!

Plus, having earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in five years, you’ll launch your career more quickly, be more marketable to potential employers, and likely secure a higher salary.

How do I apply?

You’ll find the 4+1 application link in your student portal under “Quick Links.”
