The sequence of courses will vary, depending upon whether students attend full-time or part-time and in what semester they enter the program.

Below is a typical sequence for full-time students beginning in the Fall semester. Students who attend part-time, or who begin in the Fall or Spring semester, should meet with the program coordinator to develop a suitable sequence of courses. Please note that students who begin the program in the Spring semester will not be able to attend full time until the Fall semester because of prerequisite courses.
