How long does the full-time Master’s program take?

Typically, the 36 credits required to complete the program will take two years or four semesters (of at least four courses each), full-time, and three years or so, part-time.  With a combination of summer and winter courses, when available, this may also be completed in two years, part-time.  Completing the degree also includes a two-semester final project. Beware of Master's degrees that only include a year's worth of coursework, and no final project or thesis; these often represent considerably less learning and may not provide you with a competitive portfolio of work with which to compete for jobs or further study.
