Course Requirements:
M.A. in Strategic Foresight Degree

The Master of Arts in Strategic Foresight (MSF) provides students with a 21-credit core curriculum of in-depth leadership and futures topics, nine elective credits in strategic foresight, and a three-credit culminating project in which students conduct research or perform an organizational intervention that incorporates all course content from the program.

All students pursuing the MSF must complete 33 credit hours. It is, however, 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 core courses
  • 9 credit hours of electives
  • 3 credit hours of culminating experience project

Full-time students can complete the MSF in as little as 18 months. Regent University considers nine credit hours to be full time. Part-time students can complete the program in approximately 18-48 months. The maximum time that is allowed to complete the M.A. in Strategic Foresight is five years. An academic year is comprised of three semesters: fall, spring and summer. Each semester is approximately 13 weeks in length. For more information please review the course map.
