* [F=Fall Semester; Sp=Summer Semester; SS=Summer Session] Additional Notes:
  1. EPC 653 and 657AB are required to take part in any fieldwork or internship experience. There are few exceptions.
  2. EPC 660 is a class that should be completed near the end of your program. It is designed to assist you in developing a project that may be expanded for use as a thesis/project in completing the M.S. degree. It can not be taken until you've completed at least one semester of fieldwork (659C or 659D).
  3. EPC 662 is a topical class. By Fall '97, students will be able to take this class more than once for credit. At present, it can only be taken for credit once. It is intended as a capstone class during or after EPC 659D.
  4. Good planning for Career and PPS students involves taking both 653 and 657B in the spring semester. The 657A class can be taken in summer, fall, or spring.
