Course Listings

Review the graduate course listings for current academic year »

Please note when reviewing course listings:

  • Review Eligibility Requirements for courses prior to submitting an application.
  • Please note that all initial placements for winter session courses are done in late June. All spring and summer session courses are done in mid-October. If you receive a notice of placement at that time you must commit or decline the placement within the acceptance period. Hence, it is very important that you only choose to apply to the course that you are ready and willing to accept a placement.
  • Select ONLY the course(s) you are willing to commit to—applying to courses that you are not ready or able to commit to, may take away the opportunity for another student.
  • Placements for the initial and rolling admission placements will be done according to timeline above.
