Accelerate Into Master’s (AIM) - BS in Public Health


Return to: BS in Public Health  

Walden University offers opportunities for undergraduate students to accelerate time to the completion of a master’s degree. This option, called Accelerate Into Master’s (AIM) , allows undergraduate students to complete graduate-level courses, upon approval of their advisor, that will fulfill the requirements for their undergraduate program as well as graduate requirements for a future master’s program.

The BS in Public Health includes AIM as a concentration option. 

Degree Requirements


  • 181 total quarter credit hours
  • General education  courses (46 cr.)
  • Core courses (80 cr.)
  • Concentration courses (25 cr.)

Concentration Curriculum


Concentration Courses (25 cr.)


Students complete a minimum of 10 credits of AIM courses from any AIM program  along with courses from the BS in Public Health program concentrations.

Elective Courses (25 cr.)


Choose five courses from general education , BS in Public Health, or other Walden bachelor’s degree programs. Elective credits should total 25 to meet the program requirements. Students may also be eligible to transfer previous credit to meet their elective requirements.
