Course Sequence/Schedule

Students can complete the Interdisciplinary program in 1 to 2 years if attending full time (9-12 credit hours per semester). Students attending part time can complete in 2-4 years based on their preference.  Program completion must be obtained within a six-year time limit from the time of the first graduate course.

Courses in the core are offered each semester to help students advance to degree and to provide flexibility for scheduling.  Students in the Interdisciplinary program will choose 2 areas of focus from within the three colleges (Education, Business, Liberal Arts & Sciences).  Course sequence is dependent on the areas of focus and course availability. The study plan which is developed with the Program Coordinator at the time of admission provides insight into the course sequence and degree timeline and is aligned with the student's goals for degree completion.
