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 have significant work and other obligations, one course per session is the general norm. Registering for one course each session allows students to take six credits each term (the equivalent of an academic semester) and 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.
