Support that empowers.

The Master’s Accelerator Program 1 (MAP 1) is a one-semester, pre-master’s program designed specifically for international students who are ready to succeed in immersive English-speaking classrooms, but who also want the benefit of English-language and academic training that will help them succeed in their postgraduate program. The program curriculum offers a balance of degree-specific and MAP-exclusive courses. You will be equipped with the practical, degree-specific vocabulary and research skills you need to excel in your coursework.

  • JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF SUPPORT when you need it. The MAP 1 curriculum is designed to accommodate your academic and English-language needs.
  • CREDIT-BEARING so you can earn credits towards your master’s degree while taking courses tailored to your needs as an international student, helping you achieve your academic and career goals.
  • PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TAILORED TO YOUR GOALS with special learning objectives and English-language skills that develop your skills to the graduate and professional level.
  • OPEN AND CLOSED COURSES, so some of your classes will be integrated with U.S. students and others will be exclusive to your MAP cohort.
