Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the time commitment required for study outside of the classroom?

There is a significant amount of time and effort required to participate in this program. There is no formula to provide an exact amount of time but estimates and anecdotal evidence suggests approximately 7-10 hours per week.

How long is the program?

We offer two separate cohorts start dates each year - April and September. Each cohort will run for nine (9) months ending in May and December respectively.

What is the program format?

The program is delivered 100% in person on the Duquesne University campus conducted Friday evenings 5 to 9 p.m. and Saturdays 8.45 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. The cohort calendar is established to run every other weekend in this format. Every effort is made to not run back-to-back weekend sessions but occasionally we must due to University or National holidays.
