Course Delivery


Courses are delivered in a monthly, face-to-face format. Online resources and activities are used to bridge monthly classroom meetings and maintain momentum and continuity of learning. Internship and dissertation hours are facilitated via online meetings, with face-to-face meetings at the discretion of the instructor or dissertation chair. The CES program offers a four year sequence (three years of coursework followed by one year of dissertation and internship). All core and research courses are offered at the A.P. White campus in Columbia, KY.

Course Sequence

Students take 2 classes each semester over a period of four years. Students participate in classes on Friday and Saturday once per month, in addition to online components designed to bridge between face-to-face meetings.
