Program Formats

Lindenwood University strives to make quality higher education accessible to traditional and nontraditional students. Graduate academic programs are offered in four distinct formats: the semester calendar, the quarter and trimester calendars (employed by the School of Accelerated Degree Programs), and the five-term calendar, employed by the Plaster School of Business & Entrepreneurship for all graduate business programs and by the School of Humanities for the Master of Public Administration. Graduate degree courses in art, communications, counseling, education, health sciences, nonprofit administration, and theatre are held on a semester basis, with some classes meeting in the evenings.
