The online MSSL is in an accelerated format, meaning that each course lasts for seven weeks. Comprised of 33 credits in total, it takes students an average of 18 months to complete the degree.

There are generally no prerequisites to course selection except that the thesis is completed at the end of the program. In addition, the 33 credits are made up of 11 defined courses, so there are no electives within the program.
