Agora schedule

In addition to the courses listed to the right, various specialty seminars, visiting Scholar presentations, and lunch brown-bag seminars are often offered.

Schedule of Courses
A student’s course schedule will depend on 1) their program of study, 2) how many course they want to take a semester (ERME students often take between 1 and 4 courses depending on their part-time or full-time status), and 3) when these courses are offered. 

Most students begin with a combination of the following courses:
Fall Semester: ED/PY 460, ED/PY 462, ED 466, ED/PY 468
Spring Semester: ED 467, ED/PY 469, ED/PY 565, ED/PY 851

ED/PY 460 is the only ERME course offered over the summer.  Many students take this course the summer prior to beginning their first fall semester of study.
