Master's
Accelerator
Program

For international students, the transition from a bachelor's degree in your home country to graduate school in the U.S. can be challenging – complicated admissions processes, a new language, new ways of learning, and a new home.

The Master's Accelerator Program (MAP) eases this transition by providing four simple routes to enter your graduate program at Auburn. MAP combines credit-bearing courses from your master’s degree with additional support, teaching, and cultural experiences helping to ensure your future success.

Auburn Global offers four ways for international students to enter their graduate program. The entry path that is best for you will depend on your qualifications and personal preferences.
