Course Schedule

Following is detailed information about the current academic year. The three-hour courses typically start at 6pm, but the day of the week may change from quarter to quarter.

Our master of arts program generally follows Northwestern's academic calendar, which divides the year into quarters. This schedule differs from the semester system used at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. (Learn more about Feinberg’s class and curriculum information.)
