Courses

Complete Timeline for Fulfillment of Core Course Requirements

While taking classes during your first year, students will also have the opportunity to perform three research rotations as a means of deciding where they would like to do their thesis. Our program is quite challenging and is a reflection of the students we graduate. Therefore, students are expected to complete all core requirements while maintaining an overall B average (must make a B or better in each course).
