Curriculum

Program Format

The typical format is designed for the working professional with courses offered primarily on weekends and evenings. Students will typically take nine credit hours per semester; including the summer term. The degree is designed with an expected completion date of four years, including a one-year internship. Within the first semester of training, students may elect to follow a three-year program designed for traditional, non-working students. Regardless of the pace with which students complete the program, all coursework and field-based experiences within the curriculum are required, including two practica, one of which will be school-based.

The program is offered on the main campus in Fort Lauderdale, as well as at the Tampa Regional Campus.
