We generally do not offer graduate coursework in the summer except for internship courses.

Courses are generally in the evening two days a week. There may be one semester where you have courses three evenings a week.

The guides below will help you plan a two-year completion of the program. Students are encouraged to take PSY550 (Graduate Research) as they see fit for their personal and career goals. Students who need to remain full-time will need to take at least one credit of PSY550 their last semester.
