Creating A Flexible Class Schedule

Leadership and Global Development

Marymount California University's Master’s degree program conducts a year-round schedule. The academic year is divided into three terms: fall =16 weeks, spring =16 weeks and summer =12 weeks. Graduate students may enter the program in any of the three terms. The Master's degree program requires completion of a graduate degree within four years of initial enrollment.

Full time status for graduate students is defined as:

  1. enrolled in 9 or more units of coursework; or
  2. enrolled in a research semester; or
  3. enrolled in remaining coursework to complete the Master’s degree requirements.

Classes are held one evening per week, to accommodate working professionals. The average class size is 18. Students benefit from personal attention and opportunities to build meaningful relationships with professors and peers from diverse backgrounds.

The application deadline is approximately four weeks before the start of any session.

Master of Science students meet with the graduate director to discuss scheduling classes and selecting electives based on personal interests and circumstances. Academic advising provides an opportunity to continuously monitor students’ progress and individualize their programs of study. International students are expected to be enrolled in a full-time course of study. All graduate students are required to maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale for the duration of the program.
