The Accelerated Degree Program (ADP) is an apprentice model program where current University of Michigan, LSA college students are invited by a mentor to apply to the program. When faculty mentors identify a potential applicant, they encourage the student to take graduate level courses, upper level statistics course, and/or complete independent research during their senior year. This will give the student a sense of the graduate experience and provide opportunities to demonstrate their intellectual caliber and commitment to do a Master’s program in Psychology. The faculty member based on the performance in the courses and the research focus can invite the student to apply to the ADP program to a particular area (Social, Developmental, Clinical, and so on).
