In each of our three 10-week terms you take only three courses (hence the 3-3), giving you time and energy for a deeper level of study than you might have with a semester calendar. Each course is the equivalent of a semester's worth of work. Faculty members teach only two courses each term, giving them more time for one-on-one mentoring.
The long break between the fall and winter terms lets you engage in career and graduate school exploration, pursue an independent research project, take advantage of an internship or pursue one of our off-campus study opportunities.
