Sample M.S. Degree Completion Plan
Regular availability of DACSS core and technical courses - and the wide range of available DACSS substantive courses - allows you to pursue a degree on a flexible schedule. The in-person degree can be finished by a full-time student in as little as one year on a fast track plan with the last 3 months (mid-May through mid-August) compatible with full-time work, while an online student might take 3 to 4 years to complete the degree taking at least two classes each year.
Some of the possible course plans for degree completion are illustrated below. We strongly encourage students without a PhD-level fluency in a particular research literature take a substantive elective alongside the core Research Design course.
NOTE: Research and internship opportunities may be paid or may be unpaid, and are not guaranteed to be provided by the DACSS program.
