Program Schedule

TUJ Continuing Education courses generally coincide with the university’s undergraduate semester calendar. Semesters begin in January (spring), May (summer) and September (fall), and typically last from eight to twelve weeks.

To accommodate working professionals, courses are typically held on weekday evenings and weekends.

One or two-day workshops are also held on Saturdays and Sundays, and help students quickly achieve more targeted learning goals.
