MA: New requirements, precision scheduling

  • Most MA courses will be available only at the 6000 level and some will be offered on a two-year rotation.
  • Plan a two or three schedule for yourself. The new courses will not usually be available through independent study: if you miss one in the rotation, you will need to return to campus to complete the requirement.
