Course Options

Course options

You can complete your degree at a pace that fits your needs, in as few as six semesters or as long as four years. Full-time students typically complete 60 credit hours in six semesters. Part-time students follow a similar sequence at a slower pace.

Courses meet year round, including summer semesters, and employ instructional methods appropriate for the subject matter (e.g., in-person interactive, online, and hybrid) with about one-fourth of courses online. Most courses meet after 3 p.m. to make other life obligations easier to handle. Our faculty provide excellent instruction, informed by both student feedback and best-practice methods.

In addition to course work, the program includes 700 hours of field experience over three semesters:

  • 100-hour practicum
  • 600-hour, two semester internship

All students take a qualifying exam prior to graduation that provides feedback on their strengths and areas of needed improvement.

Fall semester application deadlines are: early decision December 1; final application March 1.
