Plan of Study


HESPIE is an eight course, 24-credit program that may be completed in as little as fifteen months. The program uses the semester academic calendar: fall and spring semester (16 weeks each) and Summer Session (two 6-week sessions). Students register for two courses for a total of 6 credits every semester (fall, spring, summer, fall). Classes meet one evening per week.

Students should visit Academic & Financial Deadlines to determine the semester schedule start and end dates as well as deadlines for cancellation or withdrawal. Courses are only open to students who are admitted into the program.
