UA&P is now offering an Integrated University Program that offers Junior College to Grade 10 graduates with the opportunity to obtain a Master’s degree in six years. Opening this August 8, the 6-Year Integrated University Program is founded on a strong liberal arts curriculum, one of the hallmarks of a UA&P education.
This liberal education curriculum will be integrated and aligned with the new General Education curriculum and the new course content to lead to the same Master’s degrees that UA&P offers. While it is a seamless and integrated program, distinct phases with their own milestones are identified: the first two years is Junior College. It is a liberal arts curriculum designed to support the five Master’s programs being offered. As such it may be likened to the HUMSS and GAS strands. The next three years is the undergraduate program and the final year, if the student qualifies, will be the Master’s degree. Students, however, may opt to move or transfer to another university after Junior College here.
The following master’s degrees are available:
From its early years as a university, UA&P has pioneered an innovative 5-year program that confers a Master’s degree to High School graduates in 5 years: MA in Communication, MA in Humanities, MA in Political Economy, MS in Industrial Economics and MS in Management. Similarly, the Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013 (aka K-12 Law) became an opportunity for UA&P to further innovate and develop the 6-year Integrated University Program.
Should there be sufficient demand, electives may be offered to better prepare students for other courses (e.g. those aligned to the STEM and ABM strands). Those who will not qualify for the Master’s phase may graduate with a Bachelor’s degree even before the 5th year ends.
Other UA&P undergraduate programs not linked to the 6-year programs are still offered to senior high school graduates from other institutions. Junior College graduates of UA&P may also shift to these programs.
