Concord’s Three-Year accelerated programs take advantage of a student’s extensive prior learning credits and integration of course content across the curriculum. The program makes it possible for students—especially advanced learners and non-traditional students with professional and life experiences—to obtain a university degree in just three years and either enter the workforce with practical skills, or continue into a graduate or professional school, a year early. This is achieved through one or more of the following:
  • a structured, yet, flexible curriculum,
  • hands-on training on advanced instrumentation,
  • business and research internships,
  • study abroad opportunities for interested students, and
  • access to programs centered on the development of soft skills.
