MA Two-Year Curriculum

Student progress through the program is intended to be sequential. First-year students are offered certain courses which provide a theoretical and practical foundation for courses that will follow. In addition, certain advanced courses require the student to have the background of more basic courses or practicum experience in order to benefit fully from the course experience.

Students must satisfy all stated prerequisites for a course before a registration for that course can be considered official. Recommended course sequences for spring starts are available through the program chair or advisor.
