NOTE: These are merely samples of how a masters course of study might be organized. All masters students will design their own individualized course of study based on their area of interest in consultation with their faculty advisor. However, note that most courses are offered once a year, so required core courses must be taken in this sequence for graduation in two semesters and a summer.
