Special Programs

The master’s accelerated program (MAP) provides an opportunity for academically qualified undergraduate students to begin working on a master’s degree during their junior and senior years while completing a bachelor’s degree. Typically, a bachelor’s degree requires four years to complete and a master’s degree requires an additional two years. The master’s accelerated programs allow students the opportunity to complete a graduate program in an accelerated manner.

Interdisciplinary studies, at New Mexico State University, are intended for individuals specializing in programs that require the integration of more than one discipline to fully engage in the field of study. The programs provide a mechanism to address emerging scholarship, innovation and research, as well as, allow graduate students to engage in emerging technologies that optimize their education outside the traditional disciplinary boundaries.

NMSU only recognizes graduate credit for non-degree work from the University of New Mexico (UNM). Transfer credits are restricted to 6 credits with the approval of the appropriate department, the college dean, and the graduate dean. A student classified as non-degree is not eligible to receive financial aid, student employment, or institutional tuition waivers, nor is he or she eligible to participate in student government or intercollegiate athletics; and Is not eligible to receive benefits from veterans’ programs. International students with an F-1 visa are not eligible to apply to this program.

International students with an F-1 visa are not eligible for undeclared master status. Advising for an undeclared master student can be obtained from the Graduate School. Students in the standing are restricted to enrolling in 9 graduate credit hours. To continue enrollment a student must apply and be admitted into a degree-seeking program.
