Learning Formats

Classroom

Attend class in person and engage face to face with your classmates and instructors as part of a highly interactive curriculum. Assignments and other course materials are delivered through Canvas, a web-based learning management system that also serves as a communications hub. You must attend at least 60 percent of your class sessions in person. You may view the remainder online, either as recorded sessions or in real time (limit of two live-streamed sessions per quarter).

Online

Courses are streamed online in real time from the classroom. You interact with your instructors and fellow students via chat, using Adobe Connect web conferencing software. Assignments and other course materials are delivered through Canvas, a web-based learning management system that also serves as a communications hub.

For added flexibility, each quarter you may view recordings of up to 40 percent of your class sessions instead of attending in real time. You also can attend the classroom sessions in person if space is available.

Blended

Our special blended programs combine the convenience of online study with the vibrancy of in-person classes for a unique learning experience.
