Should I Pursue the Accelerated Cohort or the Traditional Pathway?
Choose the Accelerated Cohort if you:
- can take the equivalent of a full-time course load for five consecutive terms, including summer.
- are able to intern 35−40 hours per week at an agency during the internship experience.
- are eager to proceed through the program with a cohort of peers taking the same coursework at the same time.
- would like to save on tuition by completing the program at pace.
Choose the traditional, flexible path if you:
- need flexibility in the courses you choose and the number of credits you might want to take each term due to work, family, or other obligations.
- would like to extend your internship by going part-time, 20−35 hours per week.
- already hold an allied license or have eligible credits you would like to transfer to the program.
