Courses are scheduled in the evenings and on weekends to accommodate the needs of the adult student. Classes meet once each week or on Saturdays during each eight-week session. The schedule for the master’s degree in Administration of Human Services follows an accelerated format adapted to the three-term schema (fall, spring, summer) of the School of Graduate Studies.
Fall 1 and 2 sessions = Fall Term
Spring 1 and 2 sessions = Spring Term
Summer 1 and 2 sessions = Summer Term
To foster graduate-level work, since most students work and have other obligations, one course per session is the general norm. Registering for one course each session allows students to take six credits in the equivalent of an academic semester and so to qualify for financial aid as part-time students. Students taking one course each session should be able to complete the degree requirements in two years. The maximum time frame to fulfill the degree requirements is six years.
