Courses

Courses for this program are 100 percent online: no campus visits are required.

Successful completion of the program requires 24 credit hours of course work. Courses are 3 credit hours each, unless stated otherwise.

Some online courses are synchronous. This means class lectures occur at certain times of the day/week and require the student to attend via online collaborative tools.

Work with your adviser to decide which culminating course is right for you.
