/ˈkōˌhôrt/ - A group of students banded together to achieve common goals

All of the master's degree programs in the Department of Secondary Education feature student cohorts. All master's degree students in a cohort start at the same time, take the same classes (with the exception of electives), and typically graduate at the same time. The Science Education Master's Program is a two-year cohort. In our first eight cohorts nearly 180 students have graduated from the CSUN Master's Program in Science Education.

Approximately 90% of those who start the program graduate in two years with all other members of their cohort.
