Academic Curriculum

The curriculum requires four years of classroom work and study.  The school operates on a semester system -- two fifteen-week semesters in the fall and spring, and an eight-week summer session, excluding examination week.  The fall semester starts in late August, the spring semester starts in January, and the summer session in June.

Students enroll in nine units of courses per semester.  During the fall and spring semesters students attend three courses per week -- three evenings a week for three hours per evening, nine classroom hours per week.  The required summer courses are two units or three units of credit each.  Students complete the required summer courses in two or three summer sessions.  Students attend summer classes three evenings a week or less.
