UMW provides multiple pathways to graduate school for students interested in taking their education further. First, UMW offers several of its own graduate degrees through all three of its colleges. Some are 4+1 programs, meaning that students can earn a Master’s degree in only one year after earning their Bachelor’s degree. That’s right – you can earn two degrees in approximately five years right here at UMW! Second, UMW partners with other Virginia institutions to provide accelerated graduate and professional degree pathways for its students. Such programs include law, medicine, and engineering. You can make a smooth transition to graduate school at one of these partner institutions and use your time efficiently!
