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, on-line, and hybrid) with about one-third of courses on-line. 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 1,000 hours of field experience over four semesters:
- 100-hour practicum
- 600-hour, two semester internship
- 300-hour advanced internship
All students take a qualifying exam prior to graduation that provides feedback on their strengths and areas of needed improvement.
