What is the difference between the 16 and 20 month programs? How do I decide which one to choose?

Both tracks or curriculum schedules are four semesters in length; however 16 month students attend courses and complete fieldwork over the spring/summer semester whereas 20 month students do not.

16 Month Track 20 Month Track
  • 1 field placement for 3 semesters
  • Field work starts in January (of 1st year) and ends in December (of 2nd year)
  • Graduate in December
  • 2 field placements over 4 semesters
  • Field work starts in September
  • Summer semester off (typical college schedule)
  • Graduate in April

You should also keep in mind that some field placement options require a specific track. For example, most public school field placement sites only accept 20 month students. The decision between the two different tracks is a personal one that should be weighed carefully for your own educational needs and preferences. Please contact the Office of Student Services and Enrollment Management (734-936-0961) to speak with an admissions counselor if you have further questions regarding the selection of a curriculum schedule.
