Next UMD PM Symposium: May 10-11, 2018 NewsPolicies & SupportContact

We know that our students work best when they plan their curriculums around their unique schedules. There is no one-size curriculum that fits all students. Our programs, therefore, offer the flexibility for students to earn their degrees over a range of time periods, watch recorded lectures, and join discussions remotely. Students can earn their degrees completely online, completely on campus, or from a combination of both places. You decide what’s best for you.

With so much flexibility, however, you might be interested to know what’s worked for graduates in the past. Here are some example schedules for the Master of Science and Master of Engineering Programs that you can use to plan your own curriculum. For more information about specific program requirements, select a program from our programs page. You can also explore all of our courses from the courses page, or view a list of all courses by number, program, online offering, and semester.
