3-Year Sample Schedule

It is essential to complete 62 credit hours of coursework by the end of the second year, including in that total RLGN 4000, 5000, 5010, 5020, and 5030.  However, exactly when each of these required classes is taken is up to the student.  Each is offered once per year.  The first three years are in residence.  The rest may be accomplished wherever dissertation research and writing takes you.
