Full-time doctoral students will be required to complete a minimum of nine hours of coursework per semester during fall and spring semesters and a reduced requirement (seven hours of coursework) during summer semesters.
Typically, the students will take one to three didactic courses per semester (three credit hours per course) and enroll in a practicum course and a research course each of the semesters during the first two years. Students will also complete an internship during the third year of the program.
