This program is available in flexible course and program scheduling that offers options to complete your requirements. In addition to the traditional 16-week daytime and online courses available, NKU offers several accelerated 7-week evening, online, and hybrid courses.  This allows you to customize your schedule in a format that works for you and your life.
