Since 1975, Lindenwood University has helped over 20,000 working adults achieve their dream of completing a bachelor's or master's degree.

We understand the importance of advancing your career, but also understand the time constraints that you have while juggling a challenging work schedule, quality family time and more during your day-to-day life.

The School of Accelerated Degree Programs allows you to finish your degree quickly, offering classes that are typically available once a week in the evenings. Our knowledgeable instructors have real-world experience, making this a program that allows you to reach your career goals while managing your busy lifestyle.

Accelerated Degrees for In-Demand Undergraduate and Graduate Programs

These fast-tracked programs have all been designed for adults who already have considerable work experience. Our programs include information technology, criminal justice, gerontology, business, writing, communications, healthcare management and human resources management. They are designed to help you vault to the next level of your career—or to make a career change. Some degrees can be completed in as little as 18 months on this accelerated path.

Convenient Evening Classes for Working Adults

Classes are typically held once a week in the evenings for four hours. The class sizes are small—usually no more than a dozen students—to encourage personalized and interactive learning with both the instructor and your fellow students. Your classroom learning is also supplemented with out-of-class assignments. Classes are held at 12 convenient locations around St. Louis that are close to both your work and your home, so you can attend this program where it's easiest for you.
