Classes are offered in a facilitated learning environment. The format is based on the facilitation of knowledge involving students in participatory activities, group discussions, written exercises, projects, and presentations. Students must expect an average of 15-20 hours of out-of-class work each week (per three semester hour course). Extensive pre-class readings and/or assignments are required. Classes meet one night a week from 6pm-10pm.
5-Week Hybrid Classes
Courses offered in this format have the same course requirements as those offered in the 8-week format. Students will complete 5 face-to-face classes and complete additional online assignments, discussion boards, chats, etc. in our online environment between the first and last night of class. Due to the compressed nature of the class meetings, students should expect to have readings and/or assignments prior to the first class. Classes meet one night a week from 6pm-10pm. This is not offered at all locations.
Accelerated Day Classes
Some locations offer accelerated day (lunch-time) courses in a 5-week hybrid or 8-week format. These courses typically run M-Th (11am-12pm or 12pm-1pm) for 5 or 8 weeks OR Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday (11am-1pm) for 5 or 8 weeks. These courses are great for those who work 2nd and 3rd shifts or those who would prefer to take an accelerated class during the day vs. at night. Please inquire at your location of choice to see if this option is available.
Online courses are offered in an 8-week sequence. For more information, click here.
