Our program is designed to appeal to both full-time students and the working professional, with many classes offered in the evening. Further, our program is designed with flexibility in mind: with a full course load, it is possible to earn the Master’s Degree in 12 months, or you can spread the coursework over several years to fit your schedule. We also offer a Master’s Thesis option which substitutes for 6 credit hours towards the 30 credit requirement.
