Graduate Courses

The faculty has approval to offer the following courses in the academic years 2005-2006 and 2006-2007; however, not all courses are taught each semester or summer session. Students should consult the Course Schedule to determine which courses and topics will be offered during a particular semester or summer session. The Course Schedule may also reflect changes to the course inventory made after the publication of this catalog.

Classes generally meet once a month, all day on Friday and Saturday; a week-long seminar is also required at the beginning of the program.
