Concentration Areas


All concentration series courses are clinical education offerings and can be repeated until the necessary quantity of clinical contact hours have been achieved. Therefore all series courses listed have the academic credit given as the total number of semester hours required for that concentration. Individual course proposals are given as 1 to not more than 5 semester hour credits because five is the maximum number of clinical semester hours permitted by accreditation agencies.
