Emphasis courses in the fall and spring semesters will be offered in an accelerated 7.5-week format. Emphasis courses in the summer term will be offered in an accelerated six-week format, and emphasis courses in the December term will be offered in a four-week format.
The program may also be completed without an add-on emphasis.
“I loved the professors there,” Freeman said. “They made me feel like I really could succeed. They would make sure that, even though we were full-time parents and workers, that we could do it. There were many times I just felt like giving up, but they assured us, just keep going, it’s going to pay off.”
