This sequence presumes that your undergraduate baccalaureate degree contains the requisite breadth in the areas of general studies, and thus contains no dedicated general education credits. This track also presumes that the amount of your prior general education coursework is substantial; thus, no calculation of whether or not this track’s required coursework exceeds the 60% limit as defined by NAAB is made in this document.

Note: There are advising procedures that distribute the coursework over eight semesters instead of seven. That option is primarily intended if you have considerable work commitments. All coursework remains the same.
