When are classes?

Our program is arranged in a cohort structure with a new group of students admitted each fall semester. Each cohort meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the fall and spring semesters. 

Many courses embrace a hybrid format with online and face-to-face meetings alternating over the course of a semester.

Summer terms call for concentrated meeting periods to allow educators to include vacation time in their calendars.
