Graduate courses are offered in the evenings (Monday-Thursday) to accommodate students who work or intern during the day. Classes on the Loop Campus are held from 5:45-9 p.m. and classes on the Lincoln Park Campus are held from 6-9:15 p.m. Most graduate Communication classes are located on the Loop campus, occasionally on the Lincoln Park Campus.
DePaul operates on a quarter system, with three 10-week quarters (Fall, Winter, Spring) making up the formal academic year (beginning of September through mid-June). Between mid-June and mid-August, the university also offers a full 10-week summer session, as well as five-week sessions. There is also a three-week December intersession. The academic calendar can be accessed anytime on the Office of Academic Affairs website.
