It depends on several factors such as the specific program you are enrolled in, any transfer credits you might have and whether you enroll part-time or full-time. Most master’s degrees at DeVry are approximately 15 courses long but can vary by program. When taking one course per session at DeVry, you could complete a 15-course program in as little as 2 years and 2 months.2
At DeVry, we also offer several ways to help reduce the time it takes to earn your degree:
Course waivers3: Depending on the program, you may be eligible for course waivers if you have taken similar courses at the appropriate level. For example, if you have an undergraduate degree in business, you may qualify to earn an MBA in just 10 courses.
Previous credits: Have you already started your graduate work at another school? You may be able to transfer qualifying credit for up to three courses.
Work experience: If you have been through a workforce or military training program, we can evaluate your experience for possible qualifying transfer credit. We also offer course substitutions based on an evaluation of the relevant academic or professional experience.
