Spring, 1st Year
|Fall, 2nd Year
(or Thesis, if MA)
|Spring, 2nd Year

This general scheduling advice is provided to all students:
- Register at your assigned time; do not wait until the beginning of the semester to sign up for classes.
- If you need a required course to graduate and it is full, please contact the department chair (Dr. Mary Atwell, firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Take CRJU-600 in your first semester or, if not available your first semester, the next time that it is offered.
- CRJU-670 is a prerequisite to CRJU-671; plan accordingly.
- CRJU-691 should be taken toward the end of your program.
