Academic Calendar
Our academic calendar runs from August 1 to July 31, which means school is always in session. Undergraduate programs use the standard 16-week semester schedule, with optional terms in the summer. However, graduate programs vary between semester, trimester, and other individual schedules, depending on the degree. Often, terms are divided into bi-terms, which is half the length of a typical semester. No matter how the academic schedule is constructed, all terms are measured in “semester” credit hours.

School of Graduate & Professional Studies
With 17 master’s programs, five postgraduate areas, and eight pre-professional degrees, Campbellsville University offers a wealth of options for your post-secondary education. Visit this page for more information about our graduate programs.

General Education Requirements
We believe that a strong liberal arts foundation is at the heart of every quality education, with courses spanning a broad range of subjects. Our general education framework guides undeclared students on a path towards academic fulfillment, while also rounding out the specialized learner’s curriculum. General education courses are prerequisites for completing particular majors and minors, and these general courses are often designed in sequence. Courses that are listed as both a general education and a core major/minor prerequisite will satisfy both requirements. Visit this page to learn more about the general education curriculum.
