Sample Schedule

Depending on the schedule students choose, students may complete the degree program within four semesters or within six to eight semesters. There will be a self-paced online orientation for students in August. Some classes may not be offered every year, so students work with their advisor each semester to ensure that their degree progress is on track and that any schedule changes are communicated in advance.
