Flagler Fast Track Master's Program

30 Credit Hours

Flagler students who are currently enrolled in the Undergraduate Education of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing program are eligible to enroll in up to four cross-listed courses which may apply to their Master’s degree. Cross-listed courses have differentiated outcomes for students who wish to take them at the graduate level.

The Flagler Fast Track Program allows students who have successfully completed cross-listed courses to complete the Master’s program at an accelerated rate. The average length of time for students to complete their Master’s is one year after graduating with their Bachelors of Arts.*

Candidates who wish to enroll in these courses at the graduate level must complete higher level requirements as presented in the syllabus and earn a B or higher in each course.

*Timeline for completion of the Master’s program varies dependent upon individual student course selection and course availability.
