Course Taking Sequence

  • 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.
