The Master of Construction Management program consists of coursework that includes fundamental classes in project management and planning, finance and accounting, costs and project controls, legal issues, health and safety, and technology. Students participate in two practicums and at least one internship that build on the knowledge gained in the classroom through field observations and management practice. Most classes are held in the afternoon and early evening to allow students to work and intern in partner organizations while they complete their studies.

With the guidance of the Program Director, students design a curriculum suited to their own interests and time constraints. The program is a non-thesis program and will consist of a minimum of 36 credit hours. This includes 15 credits of required core courses, 10 credits of professional practice - practicums and internship and 11 credits of courses as free electives or within a selected track.  Most courses will be offered in the late afternoon or evening to allow students to work and participate in required practicums or internships at leading organizations during the day.

* Pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Program Launch Date - January 2019.
