Core Curriculum

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 complete approximately 20 hours/week of practicum during the first two years. Students will also complete an internship (approximately 40 hours/week) during the third year of the program. Students are expected to be actively involved in research, including enrollment in dissertation credits, throughout their time in the program.
