Course Structure

Courses in degree completion programs are taught seminar style. Students contribute life and organizational experiences in a cooperative learning environment. Simulations, discussions, team projects, reading, research, and writing on selected topics are used to enhance learning. Local (face-to-face) programs include four-hour weekly evening class sessions; occasional Saturday sessions; and online discussions, activities, and research. Distance (online) programs include one face-to-face weekend session at the beginning of each cohort; online reading, reflection, research, and writing; and regular online interactivity with professors and cohort members. Practicum hours can be chosen as elective course credits for some programs.
