Map to Your Doctoral Degree
Take a look at our three-year program schedule.
Courses run year-round and are divided into eight-week sessions (two classes per semester), earning you 18 credits per year for a total of 54 credits. Since this is a cohort program, you will be with the same group of peers in all of your core courses.
Courses are offered at our Downtown Pittsburgh campus and remotely, making it possible for working professionals to meet family and personal obligations while finishing all required courses — as well as a dissertation — in three years or less.
Residency is met by completing three consecutive semesters of study in the program with a minimum of six hours of course work per semester. Summer, fall and spring semesters are counted toward residency.
In addition, if you are transferring in credits, you will be required to attend six, day-long seminars, two each academic semester. These seminars will address the theory and performance of the six domains central to the study of leadership in this program: authenticity, vision, culture, quality, service and communication.
You may take these seminars in conjunction with core courses. During the academic year, seminars are typically held on Saturdays.
