Master design in 52 weeks.

The STCM is a 39-hour professional masters degree program designed to be completed within a single calendar year––from August to August––over three full semesters: Fall Semester, Spring Semester, and Summer Session D.

The masters degree is awarded for completion of 39 credits over three contiguous semesters. Students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average and fulfill all requirements in a timely manner. We follow the CU Boulder calendar and, in doing so, are guided by a year-long arc from Foundations (fall semester) to Variations and Explorations (spring semester), to Solutions (Summer Session D). All our faculty are working professionals.
