Program of Study

Required Coursework:

Students must complete graduate course work and demonstrate competency in the following  areas. Most of these courses will typically be completed in the student’s master's degree course of study (the first two years of the USA CCP program). However, if a student enters the CCP program having already earned a master's degree, they must submit syllabi and other material from their previous courses to determine if they satisfy the foundation area in question. If such students are missing any foundation area after a thorough review of their prior course materials they must remediate that course while a CCP student. The list of foundations areas is provided below alongside the USA courses  that  fulfill each content area requirement.
