Curriculum

The MS-DI Program Director meets with incoming students to explain the requirements of the graduate program, provide course advisement, and answer individual questions. Required courses are listed below. The sample program of study (Sample Schedule) outlines where these courses fit into curriculum. The curriculum includes approximately 36-37 graded credits of graduate courses and 12 credits of S/U graduate credits.

The UF Graduate Catalog, FSHN Department Graduate Student Handbook and the MS-DI Program Handbook and Policy and Procedure Manual identify requirements for the MS non-thesis graduation requirements and degree.

Program Calendar/Schedule

The MS-DI program adheres to the University of Florida Academic Calendar during the first four semesters of the program. During the full-time internship component of the program (January-August, semesters 5 and 6), all university holidays are observed and there is a one week break that occurs at approximately 14 weeks into the internship. This break may not coincide with the university schedule for spring break. There are no breaks between semesters during the full-time component of the internship (i.e., semester 5 and 6).
