  • Three-year undergraduate programmes leading to a Bachelor's degree (BA/BS)
  • Two-year graduate programmes leading to a Master's degree (MA/MS/M.Ed.)
  • Three-year doctoral programmes (Ph.D./Ed.D.)

In addition to this, shorter diploma programmes are available at both the Bachelor and Master levels.
