Plan of Study


The BSLP is a 12-credit graduate program designed to be completed in twelve months of continuous enrollment. See the sample plan of study, below. Students should use this as a guide to develop a plan with the program director. The program uses the semester academic calendar with classes held in fall and spring semester (16 weeks each), Winter Session (3-weeks), and Summer Session (two 6-week sessions).

Specific class meeting information (days and time) is posted on UMD’s interactive web service services, Testudo. Once on that site, select “Schedule of Classes,” then the term/year. Courses are listed by academic unit.

The program uses specific section codes for registration which are listed on the plan of study.  Actual course offerings are determined by the program and may vary.
