Cohort 67 - Class Schedule

This schedule is a draft and may be subject to change - updated December 3, 2012

The AU MSOD consists of 11 courses (33 graduate credits) over approximately 18 months. Each course is taught over two 3-day class weekends held one month apart. Each class involves 2 weeks of preparation prior to a class weekend, the class weekend, and then 2 weeks of follow-up after a class weekend. One Residency course happens in each year of the MSOD program: the Use of Self Residency in the middle of the first year and the International Residency near the end of the curriculum. The MSOD program begins with a cohort "launch", Intro to Experiential Education and the Learning Community, leading into orientation and the first class weekend.
