Post-Master's Curriculum

The coursework of your previous master’s degree program will be reviewed by the specialty track director and academic dean after you are admitted. You will be required to submit all syllabi in a relatively short time period for this purpose. Some of the course requirements of the specialty certification may be waived based on this previous coursework. Post-Master’s students will then be required to complete the remaining course requirements at Ohio State. The exact length of this program will, therefore, vary dependent on your previous Master’s degree.
