MS Curriculum & Formats

Students can complete the program in as little as two years as outlined below. A three year progression is also available, if additional time is needed to meet internship field placement requirements. Students may also choose a four year part time progression, with two courses per semester. 

Daytime/Evening Formats

Classes generally meet every week, on two different weekdays on the East Falls campus. Both the daytime and evening cohorts are comprised primarily of full-time students who enroll in 3- 4 courses per semester and take classes during their respective daytime or evening time periods. Part time (3-4 year) progressions are available for those unable to accomodate a full class load.
