Hybrid and Intensive Courses
Hybrid courses include a week of on campus sessions plus online work throughout a semester. Hybrid courses often have required preclass reading and writing assignments. Intensive courses meet for one week on campus and often have required reading before class, plus assignments due after the last class session.
On campus sessions of hybrid courses are generally scheduled the last full week of August and the second full week of January. Intensive courses are scheduled the first full week of January.
Online courses do not require time on campus. Most class sessions are asynchronous – each week students can participate at times of their own choosing. Some online classes include synchronous (everyone at the same time) sessions.
6 required courses are hybrid or intensives, as indicated below. All other required courses are offered fully online. Electives may be taken online or as intensives. Online and intensive elective courses are offered in the fall and spring semesters as well as in the summer term.
