Off Campus Programs are offered through a blended delivery model Each off campus program lasts 22 months and consists of 11 courses taken in sequence. Some courses in the program may be delivered entirely online, some courses through face to face weekend classes (two weekends during the 8 week term) and some courses that will combine some online instruction with one weekend of face to face instruction. Depending on the course, the date(s) when classes meet during the 8 week term will vary.
Classes tentatively begin June 18, 2012 with a two week face-to-face session followed by 5 weeks of online study. That is: * June 18, 2012 - June 29, 2012 - on campus at MSU * July 2, 2012 - August 3, 2012 - online
he academic year for the Cohort Ph.D. program is divided into two six-month terms: January 1 to June 30 and July 1 to December 31. At the beginning of every January and July approximately 20 new students and all returning students come together for nine days of Academic Residency in Cincinnati, Ohio. The students move through the doctoral program as members of cohorts that are formed within and across the program’s three areas of concentration. The cohort model leads to the formation of academic communities through regular and sustained interaction among students
