Sample Course Sequence for Current MA Program Students

A standard plan for MA students is shown below. Each student's program of study may differ from this plan (for example, due to being exempt from a particular requirement). Students are strongly advised that it is unwise to put off taking required courses. Please note that while students may take classes over the summer, all students must be enrolled for a minimum of 4 semesters (2 fall semesters and 2 spring semesters).
