Students gain valuable experience through study abroad in programs that allow students to tailor their experience to their unique interests and skill sets, and they gain hands-on experience. Whether in a foreign country, in the U.S. or online, students are able to build communication skills, are challenged to adapt and persevere, and are exposed to differences which enables them to increase their ability to work with diverse groups of people.
Each of the more than 300 Global Education program options available around the world provide an opportunity for students to develop a valuable skill set that can give them an advantage in their career and personal enrichment.
Accelerated bachelor's and master's degree programs are designed for high-achieving undergraduate students who want the opportunity to combine undergraduate coursework with graduate coursework to accelerate completion of their master's degree. These programs, featuring the same high-quality curriculum taught by ASU's world-renowned faculty, allow students to obtain both a bachelor's and a master's degree in as little as five years.
Accelerated bachelor's degree programs allow students to choose either a 2.5- or a 3-year path while participating in the same high-quality educational experience of a 4-year option. Students can opt to fast-track their studies after acceptance into a participating program by connecting with their academic advisor.
