Program Format Options

Niagara University's graduate programs offer convenient class schedules to accommodate full-time students and working professionals:

Saturday Accelerated Classes

The Saturday format gives working professionals and busy students an opportunity to take accelerated courses once a week over five weeks from 9 a.m.-5 p.m, allowing students to complete up to three Saturday graduate courses each semester.

Evening Classes

Evening classes enable working professionals and students enough time to get out of work and attend a class once or twice a week throughout the 15-week semester. Classes usually begin after 5:30 p.m., too!

Students are able to complete the entire program by only taking Saturday classes, or in conjunction with evening classes. The program cannot be completed by taking evening classes only.
