Graduate Curriculum Structure

A New Degree for a New Era

In an era where change is constant and rapid, achieving your goals depends on an ability to anticipate and adapt to evolving situations. To better prepare our students to thrive in this environment, University College has developed a graduate curriculum structure that delivers the most effective professional education to working adults.

This powerful curriculum allows you to customize your educational experience while providing the opportunity to explore a strategic in-depth understanding of broader issues that pertain to your area of study. Learn how to handle changing responsibilities and new demands while navigating a new era of professional challenges.

Research Course
Learn about the process and principles of research for use in the professional setting.

Foundation Courses
Learn the scope of activity of organizations that operate within a career field, along with historical development, future direction and trends, and typical roles.

Concentration Courses
Focus on a specific professional area within the larger industry sector and master the skills needed to excel in that area.

Electives Courses

Customize your degree to match your career needs by choosing one of the three electives.

The Internal Option

Build on your degree concentration area by taking three electives within the subject area of your concentration, or develop a broader perspective within your industry sector by selecting three electives from another concentration within your major area.

The Related Option

Helps you develop a special skillset outside your typical area of study. Choose from a predetermined group of subject areas from other majors that have been identified as most likely related to your main concentration.

The Flexible Option

Gives you the opportunity to acquire introductory skills by choosing from a pool of courses that have been designated for this option. These courses may be from three different concentration areas, but you must provide a rationale for the selection of courses and obtain approval from your program director.

Capstone Project or Seminar
The Capstone Project or Seminar is the culminating academic endeavor of degree programs at University College. You will explore a problem or issue through focused study and applied research under the direction of a faculty member.
