Fast Track

Invest one year Online or in class 

If your career needs an energy shot, a Troy University one-year fast track graduate program may be right for you! With one of our fast track programs, you can get the professional boost you’re looking for in communication, business, education, social work or criminal justice.

Increasing your level of educational attainment pays in terms of higher earnings and lower unemployment rates according to a 2018 Bureau of Labor Statistics survey.


“For the working student who does not see it is possible to work full time, complete school full time while also handling daily life responsibilities, Troy University is providing you with an opportunity to make it all possible. The relationships you will make with other students and instructors will be ones that you can keep forever. The bonds will make you family. I was thankful enough to have this experience to grow and learn through the online fast-track program. I would tell the next person to take a chance for themselves and seek additional information. Troy University wants you to succeed and will help you every step of the way.”
