Course Requirements:
M.A. in Organizational Leadership

While all students pursuing the M.A. in Organizational Leadership (MOL) must complete 33 credit hours, it is the demonstration of independent scholarly ability at the master's level, rather than the mere accumulation of credits, that is required to successfully complete the program. The program is structured as follows:

  • 21 credit hours of required core courses
  • 9 credit hours of concentration electives
  • 3 credit hours of culminating experience

Although elective classes are only offered during certain semesters [see table below], full-time students can still complete the MOL in as little as 12 months when taking a minimum of 9 credit hours per term. Part-time students can complete the program in approximately 16-36 months. The maximum time that is allowed to complete the MOL is five years. An academic year is comprised of three semesters: fall, spring and summer. Each semester is approximately 13 weeks in length.
