Semester Credit Hours
One (1) unit of credit is assigned for a minimum of 750 minutes of formalized classroom instruction that requires students to work an average of twice the amount of time for out-of-class assignments (1,500 minutes). For courses that include additional workshop and/or laboratory sessions, one (1) credit hour equals 25 clock hours of formalized instruction plus 12.5 clock hours for student out-of-class assignments.
Length of the Semester
CHSU College of Biosciences and Health Professions-MSBS program defines the fall and spring semester length as 15 weeks and the summer semester length as 8 Weeks.
Course Delivery Method
The Biomedical Sciences program utilizes face-to-face traditional classroom lectures combined with web-enhanced courses through the university's learning management system (LMS). The LMS stores course materials that support specific curriculum objectives and all lectures are delivered in a physical classroom.
