Making use of consecutive summer and January-term offerings, Lesley students are able to engage in dynamic coursework, intensive language training, internship study, study-abroad, community service and service learning—and meet all bachelor’s degree requirements in three years.
As is true of a four-year degree student, 120 credits are needed.
Students may enter the three-year program in September or January of their freshman year. Your decision to enter the three-year degree program is not tied to your admission to the College.
You will meet with your advising team, declare a major, and choose from a variety of options:
You can earn credits through coursework, internships, study abroad, and fieldwork opportunities.
You will complete college one year early and still acquire the skills needed in an interdependent world. Together with Lesley faculty, you will not only examine knowledge in engaging and interactive formats, you will discover new knowledge—gaining a capacity for original thinking and problem solving. The Mentorship Program will provide opportunities for you to consider how to best align your course requirements, internships, and study abroad options with career aspirations. In addition, because of reduced January intersession and summer school costs, modest financial savings will accrue and you will enter your professional field or graduate school a year earlier. Ultimately, you will deepen your study through this year-round option to pursue research, internships, and study abroad related to your degree program.
Focused and highly motivated students are ideal candidates for the three-year degree program.
