Hello Phillip

A course in schema.org is a CreativeWork that describes "...a sequence 
of one or more educational events and/or *creative works* which aims to 
build knowledge, competence or ability of learners" (emphasis added)

The creative works sequenced by the course can be Courses.

Course has a property of learningResourceType that could be set to 
'degree program' for such a sequence of Courses.

How close is that to what you want? If the answer is 'not very' then 
perhaps there could be some scope for adding 'program of study' or 
similar as a subtype of Course for this specific type of Course as 
aggregation of Courses.
