Professional Programs

Courses take place over one semester, which is equivalent to 45 hours of instruction and practice. Semesters start every fall, spring and summer (the fall and spring semesters are 3 months-long, while the summer A and B semesters are 1 month-long ). Course sessions meet once per week for the duration of the fall and spring semesters while it is three times per week for summer A and B semesters. An AUC-ESS professional certificate is earned after completing six courses.
