Arts and Sciences Accelerated Pathways (ASAP)

Be Career-Ready in Five Years

The School of Arts and Sciences at Molloy College, and the St. John's University College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, have teamed up to form an alliance that permits students across 14 academic disciplines in arts and sciences at Molloy College who achieve an impressive record of performance to earn a Master's degree from St. John's University in an accelerated fashion. Students take graduate courses in their junior and senior years (one graduate course during each semester of junior and senior year for a total of 12 graduate credits). During the year following graduation from Molloy College, these students complete all requirements for a Master's Degree at St. John's University. The Molloy/SJU Accelerated Pathways will save families thousands of dollars in tuition toward graduate studies and at the same time give students a leg up on their careers. Recent studies have shown that students who earn a Graduate Degree make on average $17,000 more per year than those with a Bachelor's Degree.

Accelerated Joint Degree Pathways

The Accelerated Pathways include programs across the arts, humanities, natural and social sciences.

Admission Requirements for Accelerated Pathways Majors

  • GPA of 3.5 or higher in all courses in the major
  • At least 12 credits completed in the major by the time of acceptance

Majors in the disciplines listed above can apply for this program to their respective department in their sophomore year. Upon acceptance, students then take up to one graduate course at St. John's University in each semester of their junior and senior years, for a total of 12 graduate credits. These credits are applied to their B.A./B.S. degree in the respective discipline at Molloy College and to their Master's degree at St. John's University.

Grades are not transferred from Saint John's University to Molloy College, only credits. During the year following graduation from Molloy College, students complete all remaining requirements for the Master's at St. John's University.
