Intensive Semester

The MPPA program is also offered in a weekend format to enable a student to complete the degree in three years, while maintaining regular job responsibilities. The Intensive Semester format is ideal for working students and typically consists of a co-hort of students that complete the courses together. Classes run for three months, with each class meeting on campus two times for twenty-two hours of weekend instruction. (Classes typically begin at 9:00 am on Thursday and run through noon on Saturday). Students are expected to prepare individual assignments before attending the intensive sessions. Four (4) courses are usually offered each year. Students may begin the program at the start of any enrollment period.
