Plan of Study
HESPIE is an eight-course, 24-credit non-degree post-baccalaureate program that may be completed in as little as fifteen months of continuous enrollment. The plan of study, below, assumes a student starts fall semester and takes all courses here at UMD. Students should use this as a guide to develop their individual plan with the program director. The plan of study applies to both HESPIE-Campus and HESPIE-Online.
All pre-requisites must be satisfied. A course cannot be taken in the same semester as the pre-requisite. For information on how to determine course pre-requisites, see Course List, below.
Please note: Information on registration, academic and financial deadlines, tuition and fees, and more may be found at the top of this page in the grey box. Registration for HESPIE course sections is restricted to program-admitted students.
