The format of the Ph.D. program accommodates full-time students and working professionals pursuing doctoral study. The program is offered in a weekend-based format with class meetings six times a semester.

The program offers both full- and part-time options. This mix provides the supportive environment of a cohort model for all students while allowing a wider range of interactions with other students in the program.

  • Full-time students take approximately three courses per semester (including summers) and can complete the coursework in about two years.
  • Part-time students take approximately two courses per semester (including summers) and can complete the coursework in about three years.
  • Students may make arrangements, in special circumstances, to adjust their course load or take an alternative load that does not match the full- or part-time cohort model.
