Courses may be completed at the learner's own pace. Students have up to one year to complete each course. However, for those taking the MSJS primarily or completely through Distance Learning, the following applies: a) Not all courses available at Spertus are available through DL. b) Distance Learners are expected to spend at least 5-6 days a year at Spertus' home campus in Chicago.
