Progression through the Program
La Salle’s M.S. in Human Capital Development will follow the traditional academic calendar at La Salle. A full-time graduate student is one who is matriculated and registered for six or more credit hours per semester. Completion of this program will generally take two years (for students who successfully complete two courses each semester). The courses will be completely online; they will meet both synchronously (live online) and asynchronously (based on the individuals schedule) and will not follow traditional classroom hours. All courses earn three credits. Students will be required to participate in chat sessions and/or discussion boards, which will take the place of classroom meetings and may be frequented by students depending on their personal schedules. Currently, the fall and spring terms are 15 weeks, and the summer sessions are 11 weeks.
La Salle also offers the Human Capital Development program as a Certificate program. Students in the HCD Certificate program must complete six (6) HCD course outlined on the HCD Certificate curriculum progress chart.
In order to earn the degree, students must successfully complete 12 courses for a total of 36 credits in the program. Once an applicant is accepted into the program and registers for his or her first course, a maximum of seven years will be allowed for the successful completion of the program. Only in extreme circumstances will a leave of absence be granted. When a leave of absence is granted, it will not exceed a maximum of one year; and the period of leave granted will not count toward the maximum seven years permitted to complete the program.
