Study Plan

MPS and GCPS GEOINT are offered in spring/fall/summer/winter quarter terms. This 12-week long quarter system allows working professionals or part-time students to concentrate on 1 or 2 courses in a short period, which contributes to better course performance.

Students have the options to study full-time or part-time, or skip a quarter semester due to work or family reasons. It is recommended that students take at least two courses in a regular Spring and Fall semester sequence: MPS GEOINT will require at least five semesters to complete, and GCPS GEOINT will require at least two semesters. The tables below provide a guidance on which courses are provided and to take each term for full-time students who are willing to graduate in five semesters.
