MPS Course Schedule (Pre-2017)

Courses are offered in four 10-week terms per year. We use the quarter system instead of the semester system because most students in the program work full-time and can concentrate and learn much better if taking only 1 or 2 classes at a time.

The MPS schedule for the current academic year (2016 to 2017) is as follows:
