Image of student and advisor planning schedule


You set your own pace. Two classes a semester is typical and considered part-time. Students can finish the program in 3 years. You may also choose to carry a full-time load of four courses a semester in fall and winter, completing the program on a full-time basis in 18-24 months. You have the flexibility to take only one class should professional or personal demands dictate a slower pace.

Convenient evening classes are held Monday – Thursday 6:00 – 8:50 pm allowing our students to remain employed if desired. Summer electives, including study abroad, are offered. Occasionally a core course is offered Friday night – Saturday mornings on alternate weekends.

All classes are taught in person at the Virginia Tech Northern Virginia Center.
