All of our graduate programs are research-based, "theory to practice" and competency-based, designed with a schedule that fits the work and personal needs of educational professionals. Candidates proceed through the coursework in cohorts, starting in the summer, fall and spring semesters depending on the program of study. Our programs are in high demand due to a limited number of spots offered each cohort. We recommend that you begin the process as early as possible to obtain your application decision early.
