The length of the program will vary depending upon the nature of the undergraduate degree and the major selected. The program consists of a common body of knowledge (18 hours), core (24 hours) and elective (9 - 12 hours) courses. Any or all common body of knowledge courses may be waived for equivalent coverage at the undergraduate or graduate level with a grade of C or better. Any course subs for the core cannot also be utilized to meet major (elective) requirements.
